The Red Brick Gallery’s Fall Exhibit from Friday, August 28 to Sunday, October 4 will feature the refreshingly beautiful watercolor paintings and pastels of Sally S. Heston.
Join us for the Meet-the-Artist Opening Reception with Sally Heston on Sunday, August 30 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. in the Red Brick Gallery, 17 Main Street in Foxburg.
Says Heston about the inspiration for her work: “I paint those things that inspire my sense of beauty and good design. I am drawn to natural subjects, including landscapes and parts of landscapes like flowers, animals, and buildings. Lately I have been working with figurative subjects, sometimes adding them to a natural environment. Like the impressionists, whose work I have always admired, I like to portray the effect of light on those subjects. I work in a variety of media, but have always enjoyed the challenge of working with transparent watercolor, especially because I enjoy its transparency and the accidental effects that occur when it is manipulated.”
