Opening June 22 at the Palo Alto Art Center is MMG artist Julie Heffernan‘s traveling retrospective, “Sky is Falling.” On view through September 1, 2013, the exhibition will continue to travel throughout the country, and features many benchmark works from her impressive career.
Says the curator:
“Julie Heffernan draws from a rich art historical tradition of still lifes, landscapes, and portraiture to create her lush canvases. With traditional techniques she creates very topical representations that address climate change, consumption, and globalization. This exhibition will feature a wide range of paintings produced within the past ten years and is accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by Rebecca Solnit.”
Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Julie Heffernan now lives and works in New York. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States and is included in numerous national and international collections, including the Columbia Museum of Art in South Carolina and the Virginia Museum of Fine Art in Richmond. A traveling retrospective of her work was organized by the University Art Museum, University of Albany in 2006.
