When the Water Rises: Recent Paintings by Julie Heffernan

January 24 – March 21, 2019

Paintings by Julie Heffernan

Imagine a fantastical/dystopic future where ice caps have melted and human beings have moved to higher grounds, often living in trees. The exhibition, which runs from January 24 – March 21, includes the vibrant, colorful, and intricate landscape paintings of Julie Heffernan, a San Francisco-based painter. The exhibition lends itself well to supplemental programs on climate change and Hurricane Harvey.
