Bill Brownstein (Montreal Gazette):
“Montreal artist Tom Hopkins, a fixture in the local arts community, died suddenly on Sunday, January 23, 2011. Hopkins, 66, was world-renowned for his landscapes and still-lifes and served as both mentor and teacher to numerous other Montreal artists.
Born in Summerside, P.E.I., Hopkins studied art at Mount Allison University and completed his Master of Fine Arts degree at Concordia University, where he taught from 1983 to 1997. He had also taught at McGill University as well as at workshops throughout Canada and the U.S. Hopkins is survived by his wife, Joan Marshall, daughter Anna, son Jacob and stepchildren Michel, Gabrielle, Catherine, Benno, and Leah. Hopkins’s paintings are in public and private collections around the world.”
Since 1994 Galerie de Bellefeuille is proud to represent this exceptional artist. He will be missed by his friends, his colleagues and his many collectors. The gallery offers its deepest sympathy to his family.
