Every three months the Transylvania Community Arts Council hand selects a young artist to feature in their Up & Coming Gallery. TC Arts has selected a 22-year old aspiring artist from Brevard, NC named Morgan Hoxit to feature October thru December. Hoxit said, “My love for art runs in my blood. While most of my fathers’ side of the family are artists, my father is the one who has inspired me the most. Watching him live his life for his artwork, and teaching us how to appreciate it as well, he handed down a grain of his gift with the arts to me.”
Hoxit is currently a student at Brevard Community College studying to earn her associates in art. She hopes to turn her artistic passions into a career. She gives credit to her art teachers from high school to college. “Ms. Shoenacher and Ms. Danis-Stys have helped me to recognize my potential, and reach for it. They have showed me that I can be confident in my artistic abilities and put them to work. I try to reflect the environment around me, and my abundance of emotion into my work. I want my artwork to stir up different feelings in different people when they see it. I use mainly acrylic and water color while painting. I also love to sketch portraits and still-lives” Hoxit said. To see Hoxit’s artwork, stop by the TC Arts Council located at 349 S. Caldwell Street in downtown Brevard. The TC Arts Gallery is open Monday – Friday from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm.
