b. 1940. Sculptor and printmaker, Born in Joplin Mo. attended the University of Colorado, the Sculpture Center in New York, the University of Kansas (BFA 1963), and CCAC.  He assembled figures in often humorous combinations of found and tooled objects, primarily of wood, coupling a basically cubist style with overtones of Surrealism.  Some of Hoare’s pieces occupied the anonymous, grassroots sculpture garden that began to flourish in the mid-1960’s on the mudflats of Emeryville.  In the 1970’s he was one of the earliest Bay Area artists to experiment with color xerox as a medium for printmaking.  -From Art in The San Francisco Bay Area 1945-1980 by Thomas Albright.
