Margo Hoff




On a chance encounter, I grabbed a book from the library at Grant's school last week, and discovered an amazing artist named Margo Hoff. The book I grabbed is called "Andy All Year Round."

Margo Hoff died in August at the age of 98. She lived a few blocks from me and in 2003 showed at a little gallery a block away.

Hi--I, too, am a big fan of this artist, and saw her last show at the 20/20 Gallery in NYC.
She had a tremendous track-record, and there is a lot of info about her at margohoff.com, including news of a show in Chicago later this year.

Margo was my great aunt. I knew she was an artist and she gave me a sketch book when I was 7 years old, but I had no idea how famous and how great she was. Here is more of her work margohoff.com
