Randall Heppner, Autumn Joy, 2015. Watercolour on board.
Closing Reception: Thursday, August 30th, 7:30 pm, Rustad Galleria
Randall Heppner is a visual artist in Prince George, BC who has been making artwork since the early 1980’s. Having been employed in the logging industry for many years, Heppner spent a great amount of time in the wilderness. During this time the forest that surrounded him served as a source of inspiration for drawings and paintings. Today, working primarily in watercolour, the artist combines first hand memory and imagination in his depiction of wilderness spaces. This exhibition brings together a selection of Heppner’s early work, alongside more recent paintings, all of which celebrate the natural world.
