Hoover has show, sale Dec. 4 at Temple Beth-El


More than two dozen paintings by award-winning Las Cruces artist Annetta Hoover will be on exhibit and for sale during her art show, “Celebrating Friendship: A Legacy of Art,” 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4, at Temple Beth-El, 3980 Sonoma Springs Ave.

The art show, a fundraiser for Temple Beth-El, pays tribute to Hoover’s long-time friendship with temple members Barney and Ruth Ann Sugarman.

The work of six other painters from the Temple Beth-El community will also be included in the show.

 Hoover, who turns 90 next January, will have a show including paintings of Las Cruces, Winston (in Sierra County) and White Oaks (in Lincoln County), among others.

“I paint mostly Southwest,” Hoover said. “I paint where I am, from what I see.”

Hoover also knits, crochets and does stained-glass and pottery work. She also is a frequent volunteer, especially when she gets a request from Jardin de los Niños founder and long-time Las Cruces activist Sister Beth Daddio.

“She always knows where to find me,” Hoover said.

Galleries showing Hoover’s work include Lundeen Gallery, Charles Gallery and Cutter Gallery in Las Cruces; Patio Gallery in Mesilla; Studio W in Ruidoso; and the Governor’s Gallery in Santa Fe.
