Margaret Schnebly Hodge’s exhibit: Breaking Free: Dark Energy, Dark Matter is a selection of abstract figurative and landscape paintings which use a dark and rich palette to portray a philosophical preoccupation with concepts of physical and emotional restraint, confinement, and a striving for a sense of freedom. Ms. Hodge has traveled a long and very interesting path of achievement in her career to date which can be viewed in the variety of the artwork presented in this exhibition. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Florida, School of Fine Arts in 1976, and trained extensively in classical studio traditions.

Her work can be found in public, institutional, and private collections. Breaking Free: Dark Energy, Dark Matter will be presented in the Lee Adams Florida Artists’ Gallery.
