From July 15th through August 14th, BoxHeart presents Annie Heisey: Arterial Thread on exhibit in our main gallery and
Deanna Mance: Still Life on exhibit in our upstairs gallery.

Annie Heisey's exhibit Arterial Thread at BoxHeart Gallery
Deanna Mance's exhibit Still Life at BoxHeart Gallery

Annie Heisey's current series of paintings, Arterial Thread, flit between polished moments of realism and raw areas of brushwork. Her elegant figures inhabit half-realized spaces which begin to disintegrate around them, suggesting the constantly shifting ways in which we view the world around us. Identity is woven from the threads of memories. We are made of the things we have done and the things which have been done to us. Some things we yearn to remember, others we beg to forget. The paintings in Arterial Thread are an exploration of identity through an examination of which memories to hold onto and which to let go.

Deanna Mance’s new exhibition Still Life re-contextualizes the traditional meaning of Still Life. By using the Still Life genre, she contemplates the meaning of stillness in art-making, intimate discourse, introspection of personal and ancestral history, spirituality, and meditation. Mance refers to her gouache and colored pencil works as assemblages or collages symbolic of these contemplations and the different spiritual influences in her life. The artwork in Still Life specifically references the transmutation of death and rebirth, intimate family-based faith, practices and heirlooms, and her personal relationship to ritual.
