The New Hope Art League welcomes John Ennis as its presenter at its Nov. 14 meeting at St. Martin of Tours Church school cafeteria, lower level, 1 Riverstone Circle, New Hope (off Route 179, by Staples).

The 7 p.m. meeting is free and open to the public.

Ennis has been recognized with more than a dozen national and international awards for his portrait work. His subjects include hospital presidents, university deans, corporate CEOs, board chairmen, physicians, judges, headmasters and other notable national figures.

His work is included in the collections of the U.S. Navy, Drexel University, M.I.T., Princeton Healthcare, Boston Latin School, University of Pennsylvania, University of the Sciences, Foundation for the Carolinas, Massachusetts General Hospital, Temple University and many more.

Ennis was educated at the Maryland Institute, College of Art (MICA), and the Art Students League of New York.

“There are few art forms that lend themselves more to the expression of the human experience than painting a portrait. I use what time I have with a portrait subject to explore their life, their personality, and the perception of the people that know and love them. When I step up to the canvas, I am searching for something about them, their character, their love of life, their place in our world, but ultimately I am expressing my perception of them.”
