Hoey art exhibit opens at Next Stage Gallery

PUTNEY — The Gallery at Next Stage presents “Passages: Charcoals by Ailyn Hoey,” from Nov. 16 through Feb. 11, with an artist reception on Sunday, Nov. 18, from 4 to 6 p.m.

The Gallery, created as part of the recent $1.7 million renovation, is located at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill.

Growing up in rural Vermont, Hoey spent many hours exploring its woods, river banks, and beaver ponds. Hoey has always liked to create with her hands and started painting and drawing as a child. In 2002, she started drawing landscapes in charcoal.

The terrains that inspire Hoey provide solitude. They are often remote, rugged, and unspoiled. She has spent time creating art on Great Cranberry Island, Maine, in west Texas, southern Florida, and Vermont.

Hoey has been awarded residencies in Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, Cape Cod National Seashore and at the Vermont Studio Center, in Johnson. Hoey has exhibited in New England as well as in Texas and Florida.
