So Far

Nancy Hejna artwork in Exhibit

Marshall J. Gardner Center For The Arts

A sampling of over three decades of work – paintings, drawings, assemblage and a few sculptural pieces. Two recently published books of essays and poetry which relate to the visual art will also be available. “So Far” suggests having arrived somewhere and taking a rest. It also implies there’s likely a long way to go.

Opening Reception May 5th  5 – 8 pm

Artist Talk and Book Signing May 21st   2 – 4 pm

Author of ‘Rainbow Hair’ and ‘In Search of An Alternate Ending’

Nancy is a retired pediatric occupational therapist, residing in the Miller neighborhood of Gary, Indiana, at the southern most point of Lake Michigan. Primarily a visual artist, she has harbored a secret wish to write and has done so with some urgency over the past few years. Her visual art is often inspired by the Midwest landscape surrounding Lake Michigan, and rich imagery of 19th century painters such as Whistler, Turner, Innes and, pre-impressionist France. She  enjoys walking the Indiana dunes with partner, Mauro, and spending time with her beautiful children, grandchildren, beloved cats, and backyard chickens.
