Upstairs Gallery


Clay Wire Metal Glass

The University of South Carolina Sumter will feature Marjorie Hooks' Clay Wire Metal Glass through January 30, 2015 in the Upstairs Gallery.

Hooks was born in McPherson, Kansas, in 1946. Raised in Fayetteville, Arkansas, she attended and studied art at the university there. She is mostly self-taught in a variety of non-traditional media, but has studied painting under local artists Jay Bardin, Rose Metz, Bobbi Adams and pottery from Marcia Bugg. After moving to Mayesville, South Carolina, in 1968, she taught art at Hillcrest High School, as well as offered private art lessons. She was instrumental in developing the lower school art program in a local private school and has taught Art Camp through the Sumter Gallery of Art.

“Traveling and having opportunities to experience art venues around the country have inspired me to experiment in new and challenging mediums. I am always looking for subject matter in nature, publications, movies, but very often, ideas come to me in sleepless nights. My artwork is meant to be thought provoking, but not taken too seriously; engaging, but mostly entertaining. I have no deep philosophy to present. I only want to record and share my interpretation of some “thing” that has intrigued me. I hope each piece I create will give a smile or an “aha” moment,” says Hooks.
