Watercolour, Oil and Acrylic Paintings by Martha Hofstetter
The artist studied commercial (graphic) art at the Chicago Academy of Fine Art. She taught adult and children's classes for many years in New Dundee and for the Oxford County Board of Education in Plattsville. Her work has been shown at Castle Kilbride, the Waterlot, the Puddicombe House, Clarica Head office, Kuntz House Gallery, and various local and distant art shows.
Martha enjoys painting a variety of subjects - landscapes, architecture, pets, and people who are part of her life, especially grandchildren. She loves beautiful gardens, and has a large selection of garden originals and prints in her art portfolio. Her most interesting landscape is a depiction of a gate at the concentration camp at Dachan, Germany. The peaceful scene has a somber hidden meaning.
In 2007 the "Martha Hofstetter Gallery" was opened at the Village of Winston Park. This permanent gallery features 40 of the artist's originals, dating back to her school days in Chicago.
Martha and her husband, Ron have traveled extensively across Canada, and she has focused much of her paintings on the Canadian landscape. She especially loves Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia and has many versions of this lovely little village in her selection of art.
At present the artist shows her work at the Oxford County Studio Tour, the Rural Routes Studio Tour, and the Art Market show in Calgary. The permanent Gallery at Winston Park in Kitchener is always open to visitors and has received favorable comments from many residents and visitors alike.
