Three Artists “Re:Invent” at the Hoffman Gallery

Three north coast artists who have reinvented themselves through creative endeavors later in life will be featured at the Hoffman Center for the Arts Gallery in Manzanita during the month of August.

The artists — L. Levering Thomas, T. J. Morris, and Barry Calvarese – will be on hand for an Artists’ Reception Friday, Aug. 4, from 3 to 5 p.m.

The show, formally entitled “Re:Invent,” will remain up for viewing during regular Gallery Hours – Fridays and Saturdays, from 3 to 5 p.m., — through August 26, plus times the Center is open for other events.

“Some of us dream of a future that’s very different from our present,” said the trio in their show description. “All three artists in this show began to seriously voice their art mediums at an age when friends are spending more time with grandchildren or traveling. We believe we are all seeking to discover what really matters to us through our art.”

Levering went back to get her BA in art, graduating at age 55 from Marylhurst University. Morris began to explore portrait painting after a medical setback. Calvarese is developing a property locally where he can create.

“All three of us are passionate about expressing our creative voice and sharing our journeys of becoming better artists with friends, family, colleagues, and the public,” they said.

Levering works with fluid acrylics on wood, and mixed media. Morris works in oil. Calvarese creates ceramics, mixed media, and encaustics.
