First Friday Art Night - Marjorie Hoffman

August 2, 2019 | 5 - 8 pm
Museum of the Earth's Gift Shop

Visit the Museum of the Earth's Gift Shop on First Friday Art Night, August 2, 2019, to see the new exhibit of works by Marjorie Hoffman. The Museum will be open for extended evening hours.

Marjorie Hoffman is a born and bred New Yorker transplanted to Ithaca in 1991. She attended the High School of Music and Art and received a BFA at Cooper Union where she majored in photography and also discovered her love of woodworking. She earned Master degrees in education from the City University of New York and from Bank Street College. She has been making art all of her life and teaching for over thirty years. She taught art to upper elementary and middle school students at the Elizabeth Ann Clune Montessori School of Ithaca for seventeen years.

Working with her hands, particularly three dimensionally is Marjorie's passion. She loves being a mosaic designer. Inspiration comes from the natural world and its miraculous inventions of shape and color. Using natural materials such as wood, clay, glass and stone make the creative process exciting. Marjorie explores the potential of collaged, three dimensional materials that often reach out beyond the two dimensional surface. These works are designed to be hung on a wall.

Light refreshments will be served. Special evening $5 admission rates apply to Museum exhibits. Admission to the show in the Museum's Gift Shop is free, the artwork will be on display through the end of September.
