“Sibs 2” features the newest glass mosaic art and oil paintings of siblings, Brooks Koff and Michael Van Hout. These Wilmington based artists have collaborated together on many projects and are bringing new work to the gallery walls. The artwork will range from beautifully rendered paintings to colorful glass mosaics.
Brooks Koff “paints with glass” creating unique stained-glass mosaics that beg for a sunny window to catch and transform light into brilliant color! Unlike traditional stained-glass work, her pieces are created without the use of patterns, giving her freedom to fully explore color and design.
Michael Van Hout started creating professional art over thirty-years ago after studying Forestry at NC State University and graduating with a BSA degree in sculpture from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 1980. In addition to wire and metal sculpture, Michael creates wood sculpture, woodcut prints, mixed media, mobiles, paintings, and commissioned works.
