Heather Allen Art Opening at EXIT Realty Metro!
It happened again today! That excitement and buzz that surrounds a big event at the office. Heather brought in her amazing art and each piece brightened our offices with their beauty. Each artist we feature creates amazing art and is so wonderful - and when a new one arrives, I always think "this is the best yet!"
Heather lives in St Cloud and was brought to us through her friend and fellow artist, Korla Luckeroth Molitor. Heather is a panoramic artist - which means she has some huge paintings and some small intricate ones. Each is very interesting and takes a while to absorb.
While researching Heather, I found that she was raised in Southern Minnesota, by farm fields, Norwegians, television and public schools. She realized at a very young age that art was really cool! Today she creates visual art to better understand and relate to what is important to her. Heather received a degree in Studio Art from the U of M, Duluth and has worked for 10 years as a teaching artist and arts administrator.
The art she shares with us at EXIT are examinations of real spaces. The fractured and stretched images attempt to capture the whole of a bedroom, building, or block in one image. It really is to hard for me to explain the beauty -- you have to come see and experience it yourself! Art Network/ Opening event tonight starting at 5:30 --- art show will be at EXIT Realty Metro until first of January.
