The Stokes County Arts Council is pleased to announce the opening of our upcoming exhibit of original paintings featuring Tori Hagaman in the Apple Gallery during the month of June. A live virtual opening will be held on Friday, June 4, 2021, at 5:30p.m. on the Stokes Arts Facebook page.
Victoria (Tori) Hagaman is an artist on a mission. Her paintings are used, in part, as a fundraiser for Hydrating Humanity, her church’s non-profit that builds water wells; 25% of the proceeds from her paintings (after gallery commissions) go directly to wells. Over $5,000 has been raised in the last couple of years, resulting in one completed well and great progress toward the second.
Hagaman is an established interior designer in Winston-Salem and a self-taught artist. She started out as a landscape painter but quickly discovered that florals would allow her the freedom to paint with colorful abandon. She also enjoys the challenge of still-life, the motion of ocean waves and the captivating gazes of animals. Her occasional bird nests and skyscapes have also been popular. She paints in oils and acrylics.
