SAXTONS RIVER—An exhibit of the works of Heather J. Geoffrey will run through the month of July at Main Street Arts.
With the title and theme of “Borderlands,” the show will have an opening reception Friday, July 6, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Geoffrey describes the images in a variety of media as “whispers from a place where the veils between worlds are thin.”
This is “a place where boundaries touch like the edges and beginnings of lovers pressed close against each other’s skin,” she says in a news release. “This is hallowed ground.”
Geoffrey herself was born on a border — that between Newport, Vt., and Canada. Her artistic approach combines elements of acrylic painting, digital photography, the written word, and performance.
She received a bachelor of arts in interdisciplinary studies with focuses on Borderland Theory and Spirituality in Artistic Process and Creation from Goddard College in 2009.
She continued her studies with focuses on The Medicine of Art, Artist as Keeper of Ancestry and Lineage, Artist as Vessel, and Borderland Theory and Expression in Artistic Process.
She received a master of fine arts from Goddard in 2012. Her paintings have been exhibited in both group and solo exhibits, and her work has been commissioned for public murals and private collections.
