There will be a reception for the artist at the gallery Friday, Nov. 12, from  5 to 7 p.m., with refreshments and live music.

Hoffman, a Mandan native, is showing several original paintings from her mythology series. She has had exhibits at other galleries and recently won the “Best of Show” award at the fall art show at Bismarck Arts and Galleries.

Hoffman was also a recipient of the Minnesota State University Moorhead’s “Excellence in Art and Design” scholarship. She is currently studying art education at MSUM.

The reception, which is free and open to the public, will include live acoustic music featuring Tabitha Reule on fiddle and vocals, Buck Reule on mandolin and Jay Lardinois on guitar.

The Mandan Art Association began in 1958 by a dedicated group of artists and art lovers who wanted to share their interest in art with Mandan and the surrounding area.
