Anabel Hopkins is a Brown County, Indiana artist who works in oil, pastel, and acrylic. While she paints impressionistic landscapes depicting the beautiful rural area where she lives, non-objective abstracts are her favorite subject. While she has studied with nationally known artists such as Albert Handell (pastel), Kathleen Earthrowl (abstracted landscapes) and Joe Digiulio (non-objective abstracts), she developed her skills through workshops with many of her favorite Indiana artists. She has won a number of awards. She has shown abstracts in the Hoosier Salon annual exhibition and in many solo shows around the state. She is an early inductee into the Indiana Artisan Project.


The public is invited to the Opening Reception, Friday, October 6, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. to be held at The Garfield Park Arts Center. All entrants are urged to attend, if possible.
