Hoop Gallery actively promotes a culture of diversity through analogy and connection. To that end the presentation of ideas, images, objects and events are themed and curated around a central motif. The point is to travel and explore. We intend to provide the environment and circumstances in which florid complexities can emerge and proliferate. We aim to be part of the architecture of change and innovation blossoming in the city. Hoop Gallery welcomes collectors and first time buyers with equal warmth and enthusiasm.

For Photo #1 ask everyone to stand and face any direction with their arms by their sides.
For Photo #2 ask everyone to strike a pose that connects all of the members of the group.

Submit these photos with your name + one sentence that connects you to this group. Email these to
