The Blue Mountain Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of drawings and paintings by
Carol Heft entitled Discord and Mercy.
The compelling theme of this exhibition is human suffering and resilience; it reflects the ongoing crisis of violence, fear, and ultimately, courage as part of the human condition. There is no specific political agenda reflected in this body of work; the universal themes resonate in our troubled times, as they have throughout history. Interwoven in this theme is the promise of hope, born of empathy through common experience.
Carol Heft is a New York based artist who studied with American master Robert Brackman, became skilled at printmaking and drawing in her youth. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design before moving to New York in the late 1970s. Her eclectic range of mastery includes animated drawings, painting, collage, and both traditional and nontraditional materials and subjects.
