The Blue Heron Gallery Online is pleased to announce the first virtual art gallery show of 2021. The featured artist for our first show will be Galen Cheney.

The Mount Holyoke College and Maryland Institute College of Art graduate, is widely traveled, and presently resides in North Adams, MA, within walking distance of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Her work has been exhibited and collected in the U.S., Canada, Italy, France, and China.

Her current work was heavily influenced by a China residency in 2015, where she began working with accumulated papers that were built up into multi-layered construction. The use of paper has evolved into other materials, including canvas pieces torn from what she considered failed efforts.

The Blue Heron Gallery is excited to see what further development and evolution has taken place in Cheney’s work in the five years since. Her online art gallery show begins on January 13, 2021, and will run for 30 days. Pieces of various sizes and prices will be shown, and may be purchased online. A video Artist Talk will be presented on January 28, and may be viewed on the Art Show page. Additional video will include a tour of Cheney’s studio in North Adams.

Don’t miss the Galen Cheney Art Show in January. It promises to be an exciting Gallery opening.
