As an artist, Heather Stockton is constantly looking for and finding inspiration that lives in the details in her surroundings; the details that are overlooked by the general audience. Through the use of color and scale, she works to bring these details that were once lost or unknown to the viewer's immediate attention in hopes that they will feel encouraged to "scratch beneath the surface" for themselves. Recently, being blessed with the ability to spend a copius amount of time on the river, she found herself mesmerized by the various bodies of color she would see along the riverbed. As she worked to interpret what she was seeing, "The Water Shapes Us" developed itself as a statement of resilience under extreme pressure and harmony among chaos; a simple reminder that it is our unique differences that make the whole complete.
Join us in welcoming "The Water Shapes Us" to our hallway gallery at the grand opening July 13, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. If you are unable to attend, the show will be on display for the month of July. Please stop by during our open hours, 11am to 6pm, Monday through Saturday.
