Bill Hoppe's Retrospective is Fantastic 

The COCC professor is one of Bend's most influential artists. See his show.

Bill Hoppe's retrospective, "Painting and Paper Projects, 1970 to 2017" opened at the At Liberty gallery in downtown Bend yesterday.

We chatted with Hoppe Thursday at the opening of the show:

Source Weekly: How's it going?

Bill Hoppe: "I am just getting back from two weeks traveling in Europe. I'm sick, tired and I have never been better."

SW: Where do you get your inspiration?
BH: "I let the work find itself... You can't possibly know the result until you act it through."
