The Blue Heron Art Gallery
The Blue Heron Gallery is a non-profit space dedicated to exhibiting work with an environmental thread. We are a small but exquisite gallery in a beautiful architectural space in the middle of a 25 acre nature preserve. We show work on a quarterly basis with a reception for the public. We hope to provide a lens for people to see the very close connection between art and nature.
Interested in exhibiting your work with us? Please contact our curator, Diane Evans at email@example.com or 404-626-1891.
Summer Art Exhibit
Paintings by Kerry Butler
Come visit the BHNP Art Gallery this summer and treat your eyes to beautiful scenes painted by local artist Kerry Butler. Watercolor, gouache and acrylic paintings will be available for sale, both framed and unframed.
Kerry' work is colorful, moody and faithfully represents the splendor of nature. His use of light and shadow is fantastic!
Born in Brooklyn, Kerry worked in NYC as a commercial artist in the 70's and 80's. Now retired and living in the Peachtree Hills neighborhood, he devotes his time to daily painting, observing nature (he has a view of a pond with lots of animal activity) and spending time with Family: 2 Sons and 4 Granddaughters.
To schedule a private viewing, call the BHNP Office at 404-345-1008.
Here are some of our past shows for you to enjoy!
Diane Evans' Show: "SEEDS"
As summer came to a close and the plant world slipped into sleep mode, we welcomed Diane Evan's beautiful images of SEEDS to the Blue Heron Gallery. Rich images of intricate seed pods and fronds carefully executed in mixed media, collage and paint were exhibited.
This show ended December 31st, 2012.
Bill Boleys' Photography Exhibit: "Trees"
Exhibit dates were extended for this beautiful show, which ended September 2012.
Sharon Beals Photography Exhibit: "NESTS"
The winter winds of 2012 ushered in the work of San Francisco photographer Sharon Beals to the Blue Heron Gallery, which ended in May 2012. Sharon spent 3 years photographing archived bird nests in natural history and zoological museums in California.
This was a rare chance for the public to take a peek at these fabulous nests as the collections were only open to the scientific community. Sharon's photographs are spell binding, reflecting the rich, beautiful nest making ability of birds the world over.
The November/December issue of American Photo (a glossy, nationally circulated, bimonthly magazine) selected the Top 56 Photo Books of the Year. Of the 7 in the Environment & Nature category is "Nests: Fifty Nests and the Birds that Built Them by Sharon Beals". The review is as follows:
We had a great turnout for the opening and lecture! Check out her images at www.sharonbeals.com.
