Exhibit continues to October 8
Barbara Heller draws on her travels and experiences, her Jewish heritage, her family photos, and the mystical side of world religions to present a personal iconography. Heller’s work reflects her concerns about our world – one fraught with inequities, beset by senseless violence in the name of a “greater good,” the environment, and our psychological isolation from one another. Barbara Heller is a passionate proponent of the art of tapestry, and has exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally over the past forty years.
