Jill Hooper

Contemporary Realist


Jill Hooper: Contemporary Realist features recent work by Charleston artist Jill Hooper, a classically-trained, realist painter whose extraordinary portraits have earned international recognition. The exhibition will include a number of Hooper’s acclaimed portraits, along with large-scale landscapes and exquisite still-life paintings that demonstrate her mastery of technique. Through the inclusion of both paintings and drawings, the exhibition offers insight into Hooper’s working process while showing her development as an artist over the past decade.
