Carol Heft: Figure Drawings

Sept 5-30, 2017

Reception: Thursday Sept 7, 5-8 pm

Gallery Talk and Concert : Saturday, Sept. 16,  1:00 – 3:oo . Music  performed by the Hell’s Kitchen Funk Orchestra, conducted by Bill Warfield. 

The Blue Mountain Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of figure drawings by Carol Heft from September 5 – 30, 2017.  The drawings range in size from 48 x 50 inches to 11 x 14 inches and represent a significant and rarely exhibited aspect of the artist’s work.  The transformation of marks, interesting in themselves,  into a wide range of gestures and implied narratives make these drawings unique.  The cumulative effect of seeing them in the gallery creates a moving and powerful realization of the struggles and dignity of the human condition as seen through the eyes of the artist.

Carol Heft studied drawing and painting with American master Robert Brackman from the age of 12 to 15.  She attended the Rhode Island School of Design where she studied with  Leland Bell, Judy Pfaff, and Louisa Chase.  Her work has been exhibited internationally, and she teaches studio art and art history at several colleges in the Lehigh Valley and in New York City.  She currently lives and works in New York with her husband, musician Bill Warfield.

There will be a free concert and gallery talk on Saturday, Sept. 16, from 1:00 – 3:oo PM at the gallery, performed by the Hell’s Kitchen Funk Orchestra, conducted by Bill Warfield.  All are welcome.
