Conversation with Julie Heffernan, exhibiting artist: More Than Your Selfie
Sunday, March 13 | 2 - 3pm | Free with Admission
Julie Heffernan grew up in the West, vacationing in the grand spaces of National Parks and taking in landscapes that inspired artists such as Bierstadt. She received her BFA in Painting and Printmaking from the University of California, Santa Cruz and her Masters of Fine Art in Painting from the Yale School of Art. Her luxuriant paintings are expressions of Heffernan’s knowledge of art history, a passion for the environment and the result of her drawing upon images from her subconscious that she conjures through a meditative type of image streaming. Heffernan considers much of her work as a kind of self-portrait and titles them as such.
