MUSKEGON — Erin Hoffman, a member of Muskegon Community College’s art faculty, will discuss her current exhibition, “A House Divided,” at 4 p.m. Feb. 27 in MCC’s Overbrook Art Gallery.
Her talk will be part of a closing reception, from 3:30-5 p.m., in the lobby of MCC’s Overbrook Theater. The reception and talk are open the public, and admission is free.
“A House Divided” explores contemporary American social and political issues through the use of collage and the combination of different printmaking techniques. It opened Jan. 21 and runs through Feb. 28.
Hoffman produced many of the exhibition’s pieces during her semester sabbatical leave in fall 2019. Her sabbatical included a month-long residency on Skopelos Island in Greece, and a two-week residency in Port Townsend, Wash.
A native of Bettendorf, Iowa, Hoffman earned a BFA from the University of Northern Iowa, and a MFA from the University of Georgia. Prior to joining the MCC faculty in 2008, she taught art at Bowling Green State University, in Ohio; and at the University of Georgia.
Hoffman has been an awards juror at the Bette Clark Cannon Gallery, in downtown Muskegon; at Bowling Green State University Fine Arts Center Galleries; at the White River Gallery and Nuveen Center, in Whitehall; and at the Grand Haven Community Center.
The Overbrook Gallery hours are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with special weekend and evening hours during performances and concerts in the adjacent Overbrook Theater. Admission is free.
