Hodge is a lifetime resident of Volusia County whose mother, Peggy Schnebly, worked for the city for 35 years.

The artist’s work career began as a summer playground staffer working with children and adults.

“Some of my best memories are those formed while working at Sunnyland playground and Welch Pool,” Hodge said.

“I am truly honored by this opportunity to take part once again in the city’s educational programs for youths and adults.”

Art displayed throughout state
Hodge, a graduate of the University of Florida, has exhibited throughout Florida. Her work can be found in a number of public, institutional and private collections.

“My art images hover between our external world and our internal selves, and reflect a multitude of experiences and emotions, both past and present, both personal and universal, where all elements move concurrently.”

Hodge will present public education programs including a discussion on abstract expressionism and a workshop on expressing yourself with line and mark.

On Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m., Hodge will present a “Diversity in Abstract Expression (1940-2013)” discussion. On Saturday, Nov. 9, from 9 a.m. to noon, Hodge will host a workshop for teens and adults.
