Mayor's Gallery - November 2018: Maureen Hood
A native Californian, Hood received a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Studio from the University of California, Davis, studying with Robert Arneson and William Wiley. She continued her studies, earning a Master’s Degree in Art with a Mixed Media focus from California State University, Sacramento, where she was tutored by William Allan and Jack Ogden. Technically inspired by the works of Romare Bearden, she draws emotional strength from her own experience and her relationship with the natural environment. Hood’s work has been exhibited throughout the state and is owned by private and corporate collectors nationwide.
