On September 23, 2013, Ed Hoag will present a Watercolor demonstration at the Stillwater Art Guild's monthly meeting. The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Sherrar Center Auditorium, located at Seventh and S. Duncan.
Ed Hoag has woven a tapestry of his life with passion and artistic talent. He worked as a professional Landscape Architect and taught Landscape Architecture at Oklahoma State University and at Texas A&M University.
He has earned degrees from Michigan State University, Oklahoma State University, and Texas A & M. Hoag has studied watercolor painting with Tom Lynch, Carol O'Conner, Don Anderson and Gene Daugherty of Tonkawa, Oklahoma.
His specialty was teaching Graphic Communications, Sketching and Administration. Hoag was the Department Head of Landscape Architecture and Associate Dean for the College of Architecture at TAMU.
Hoag said, "I just got tired" of the University life. He opened an art gallery in Colvert, Texas. During his university teaching careers at OSU and TAMU, he also taught art classes, and conducted workshops in watercolor and oil painting.
Later Ed moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to be near his son and family. He again, found himself in teaching and administration of UNLV until he suffered a small stroke and a bout with vertigo, which ended his university teaching career. He is currently active in his community teaching Oil and Watercolor workshops in Las Vegas.
Hoag is a Signature member and past President of the Nevada Watercolor Society. He has been represented by galleries in Texas, Colorado and Nevada. Ed's art has been accepted into many prestigious outdoor exhibits throughout the Southwest. His passions are landscape, architecture, and wildlife. He has recently expanded his interests to include woodcarving. When asked how he keeps busy, Hoag says, "I hunt, paint, make things and spoil two granddaughters."
First time visitors to the Stillwater Art Guild may attend free. There is a $5.00 charge for returning guests.
