Heather Day Explores "Conversations and Color" @ Athen B. Gallery

Oct 06, 2017 - Nov 30, 2017Athen B Gallery, San Francisco

Athen B. Gallery opens their fall season with the solo exhibition "Conversations and Color" by Heather Day, featuring paintings that convey a year of travel and research into the relationships between color, line, texture and conversation.

Athen B. Gallery's show with Heather will be on October 6 at 160 Spear Street in San Francisco, a pop-up location away from their homebase across the Bay in Oakland. In the artist's words, "I travel seeking stories of all kinds—stories behind people, places, sound, and nature—and bring them home to my San Francisco studio to create an interpretation. From collecting moments in wooded areas or near agitated rivers, travel is research and painting is the reaction. It lets me go deeper through combining the images and emotions I accumulate from the road; it’s the reflectionary period where all elements of an experience come together."
