Barbara Heller

Opening Reception and Talk
Th Sept 6, 7:00-9:00pm
Artist in attendance | Free admission
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.

Claudie Azoulai and Nicole Schouela

Opening Reception
Th Oct 11, 7:00-9:00pm
Artists in attendance | Free admission
Exhibit continues to November 9

Nature’s changing palette, swelling with textures, tones and hues, provides a means of expression for two artists, Nicole Schouela and Claudie Azoulai.
Although diverse in their respective mediums, their messages coincide. Azoulai uses the ancient art of feltmaking, “nature instills a sense of well-being which I carry with me in my core as a fibre artist. With my palette of hand-dyed fleece, my sheep’s wool begins its journey of transformation from individual fibres to a cohesive richly textured fabric. ”

Schouela uses digital photographic deconstructions, “I find my reprieve through a relationship with nature – a daily conversation held in silence. It is a spiritual relationship, uncompromised and eternal. It nourishes and inspires as it gently prods me to think deeper about life and its meaning.”

Opening Reception, Book Launch and Slide Show With Olga Campbell and Brian Hall-Stevenson
Th Nov 15, 7:00-9:00pm
Free admission
Exhibit continues to Dec 9

“A Whisper Across Time” is the story of one family’s experiences in the Holocaust. Olga Campbell tells a personal and moving story through prose, art and poetry, creating a multi-dimensional snapshot of family losses and intergenerational trauma. This is a story of remembering and healing. It is also a cautionary tale asking the reader to look at what is happening in the world today. Part memoir, part poetry, “A Whisper Across Time” will make you stop, feel and reflect.

Olga Campbell’s art includes photography, sculpture, mixed media painting, and digital photocollage. She is also the author of “Graffiti Alphabet.”
