Sanctuary

Zai Divecha, Nicole Sweeney, Anastasia Tumanova, Alice Wiese

Saturday October 26th, 6-9pm
Artist Panel Thursday November 7th, 6-8pm

Sanctuary brings together the meditative and textural works of four female Bay Area artists: Zai Divecha, Nicole Sweeney, Anastasia Tumanova, and Alice Wiese. Through the use of light color palettes, repetitive shapes, and organic forms, the artwork takes on an introspective and soothing aura, inspiring feelings of inner peace and psychic refuge. Working in a different medium — paper, wood, ceramic, and fiber respectively — each artist is pushes the boundaries of their chosen craft in technique, application, and expression.

Tree no. 1

Thomas Jackson

June 22nd 2018

Heron Arts is pleased to announce "Tree no. 1," a new installation by Thomas Jackson. Expanding on ideas he has explored in his "Emergent Behavior" photographic series, Jackson's piece will juxtapose organic and manufactured materials to promote fresh perspectives on the complex balance between natural and manmade systems. The piece will feature a 15-foot "Sango-Kaku” (Coral Bark Japanese Maple) surrounded by floating LED grow lights and plastic take out containers. While Jackson frequently works with organic materials in outdoor settings, this will be the first time he has incorporated living flora into an indoor sculpture. The work presses the viewer not only to contemplate our dysfunctional relationship with the natural landscape, but also to envision a sustainable future in which natural and man-made systems are integrated and intertwined, and more resilient as a result. The exhibition will also feature a number of prints from the “Emergent Behavior” series.
