MEET THE ARTIST: Saturday, July 15th, 2pm – 4pm. Please join us for conversation & refreshments.
In this exhibition Tannis Hopkins presents a body of her own work that pays tribute to Hopkins Landing history, her family, and her father as well as selections from the legacy of art her late father Don Hopkins left behind. She asks how we can keep meaningful connections alive and questions what drives us to search for a sense of place and belonging. She celebrates the beauty in everyday moments and the meaningful parts of life, as well as the history of Hopkins Landing and the connection that she and her father shared through their art and their family legacy.
Tannis Hopkins is an expressive, narrative artist working primarily in oil, acrylic, watercolour, and gouache who has exhibited across the Lower Mainland. Originally from Montreal, she has created a fundamental connection with her Hopkins family roots since moving to the west coast. Her father Don Hopkins was a grandson of Hopkins Landing founder GH Hopkins, and was a gifted self taught artist inspired by the coastal landscape.
