One-Person Exhibit by Heather Nygaard

Friday, July 9, 2021

The Suffolk Art League in cooperation with the Suffolk Art Gallery presents their newest exhibit, "Life As I Know It: Recent Works by Heather Nygaard." This exhibit will be on display from July 9 to August 20, 2021 at the Suffolk Art Gallery. Local artist Heather Nygaard’s premier solo show is a collection of new oil paintings that explore themes such as mental health, motherhood, and imagination. She is the winner of the Suffolk Art League's 2020 Annual Juried Exhibition.

Isolation brought about by the global pandemic has been a major catalyst in Nygaard's work.
When life came to a screeching halt, it opened the door to anxieties, both old and new. With time
for self-reflection and new problems to solve, Nygaard faced challenges head on with her most
powerful tool--a paint brush. 

"I think in pictures sometimes, when I don't have words for something, I see an image in my
head instead,” says Nygaard. “Painting gives me a chance to let it out and connect with
people."
