John Wesley Hopper
Walnut Creek, California

John works in oils, acrylics and watercolors. He is also an avid photographer. John owns his own graphic arts & advertising agency in Walnut Creek.

Born in Seattle, John has won scholarships and awards for his painting and has been exhibited at Seattle Art Museum, Frederick & Nelson's, Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh, PA and numerous private galleries. Locally he has exhibited at Lafayette Studios, John Muir Hospital, Lafayette Art & Wine, and recently had a one-artist retrospect at Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church. He is a member of Lamorinda Arts Alliance.

John designed the logo currently in use for the Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center and has donated paintings to the Peace & Justice Center auctions to help support their efforts.

"It is with a great deal of pleasure that my watercolor paintings have been so well received and have helped to support the work of the Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center. I have been an activist for many years and much of my early work represents statements concerning the nuclear arms race, the Korean conflict and the Vietnam War."
