Craig Hood examines the narrative role of the human figure within the landscape. Often conveying a hazy atmospheric quality, his paintings present mysterious scenes of detachment and solitude. His exhibition at the Weatherspoon will include recent works on paper and oil on canvas paintings. 

Craig Hood (b. 1952, New York, NY; lives and works in Portsmouth, NH) received his BA in English Literature from Boston University in 1975, his BA in Art from Pennsylvania State University in 1979, and his MFA in Painting from Indiana University in 1981. He is a professor in the Department of Art & Art History at the University of New Hampshire. Hood’s work has been shown in exhibitions at the Bowery Gallery, the First Street Gallery, the National Academy of Design, and the New York Studio School. He is represented by Beaux-arts des Ameriques, Montreal.

As the Spring 2015 Falk Visiting Artist at the Weatherspoon and the Art Department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Hood will present a lecture and gallery talk on his work and participate in MFA graduate student critiques.

Special thanks to Michael Ananian, Associate Professor of Painting & Drawing, and the 2013/14 Falk Visiting Artist Committee.
