Fall 2015

Julia Portela - September 17th
Eric Stotik - September 29th
Fallen Fruit Collective - October 20th
Chelsea Heffner - November 3rd

Chelsea Heffner is a multi-disciplinary artist, designer and teacher residing in White Salmon, WA and Portland, OR. Early years were occupied with painting and printmaking, developing into a current practice tangled in the world of textiles, teaching, business and creative consulting. Regardless of the medium or objective, her work reflects a commitment to observation. Nature’s patterns of light & weather, cycles of death and rebirth share equal inspiration with fundamental questions about female identity, habits of dress and objects of personal representation. Heffner’s images, objects and products, often exalt, sometimes question, and frequently become seamlessly integrated as pieces of everyday life.
