A FREE opening reception will take place Saturday, January 25, from 1 to 3 PM, with an artist talk and Q&A at 2 PM.
“Heather is such an interesting individual. I first met her when she came to the Community Arts Center to see our facility and then mentioned she herself was an artist. Once she showed us her work, I knew we had to feature her. Her work is exceptional and so far past the concept of an oil painting. Heather’s art is living breathing pieces.” -Angela R. Godin, Executive Director
“The whole point of fine art is to use your medium of choice to release your soul” -Heather Davis
Heather Davis grew up in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania and graduated from high school with honors and an art scholarship. She went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting at Rhode Island School of Design. Post-graduation, Heather worked in the building trades for many years and opened her own design/build contracting firm leaving a trail of sculptures, murals, mosaics, and other custom artwork throughout the suburban Philadelphia and Main Line area.
A few years ago, Heather gave up her building endeavors to paint full time and immediately emerged as an award winning sculptor and oil painter in Chester County, PA where she lived. She has now relocated to Bedford County, PA where her family is originally from, to her new residence with a large studio and shop area for a fully committed life of creating art. Projects include both plein air and studio works of the people and places in the Allegheny Mountains.
