In the Art Gallery this month is Heather Chism. Heather shared with us a little bit about herself and her artwork. Be sure to drop into the library to see all the pieces on display.
“I am a mixed media artist living and working in rural central Illinois; a painter and clay squisher who loves exploring color and texture, and discovering new ways to play with them. I have always been a creative in my adult life, but didn’t discover my love for painting and sculpting until recent years. I found I had a need to express myself in a way that words alone could not. Fascinated with texture, I love seeing the evidence of the artist in paint strokes, mark making, and fingerprints in artwork. I love to explore and discover, to try out new things, to figure out how things work and why they work that way… A ‘why’ child to the very core.
Heather’s work can be found locally at the Artisan Depot in downtown Effingham, and she can be found online at www.HeatherChism.com. For information about the availability of the work at the gallery, please contact Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org.
