Joseph Hoffman | A Tribute to Andrew Wyeth

Jan 23, 2020 - Apr 11, 2020

  • Venue: Burroughs and Chapin Art Museum
  • Address: 3100 South Ocean Boulevard,, Myrtle Beach, SC

Self-taught artist Joseph Hoffman (b. Bristol, PA), of Murrells Inlet, SC, began drawing as a pastime and, over time, honed his skill. Winning ribbons and awards from juried art exhibits, festivals and craft shows encouraged him to continue on his artistic path. A retired Hoffman continues to draw at home, sketching and painting both famous and obscure compositions by his all-time favorite artists, namely Andrew Wyeth (1917 – 2009). Hoffman was first introduced to the work of Wyeth about 40 years ago when he visited the Brandywine River Museum in Chester County, PA. Over the course of many years, Hoffman has produced over 100 Wyeth scenes, some as many as seven or eight times. His graphite and ink renditions of Wyeth paintings are a welcome challenge to Hoffman, as well as a way to elevate his work from mere copies to homage to one of America’s most beloved artists.
