Woolgatherers: Paintings by Heather Day

February 22 - May 31, 2020

Due to preparations for the museum’s annual fundraiser, the ArtRageous Gala and Auction, this exhibition will be closed to the public March 4-6.

California-based artist Heather Day makes abstract paintings comprised of scraped, smeared, and flooded pools of pigment. The compulsive energy of her work oscillates between rehearsed abandon and careful restraint. Her encompassing murals, large canvases, and intimate drawings study the mechanisms of sensory perception — mining what happens when the body interprets a sound as a texture, or a scent as a color.

Heather will be doing a short residency in the gallery space, painting a mural from February 18 through the 21st. Guests will be invited to observe the artist as she creates a one-of-a-kind mural that will be on view for the duration of the exhibition.

February 21: An Evening With Heather Day, 6pm
Join artist Heather Day for a unique experience where she will lead a tour of her exhibit followed by an artist talk. Cash bar and appetizers will be offered.
