Artist Heidi Lowe sets Love Letter to Lewes reception Sept. 23
Local artist Heidi Lowe invites the public to see her new exhibition, Love Letter to Lewes, during a reception set for 5 to 7 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 23, at Heidi Lowe Gallery, at 119 Front St. in downtown Lewes.
This exhibition investigates a place and one's relationship to it over a long period. She uses the landscape as an entrance point, the continuity discovered in the change. This show highlights the feelings brought about by a place that has reflected and left an impression. It speaks to care and community, to grace and growth.
Lowe combines drawing and printmaking with jewelry making in this body of work. Her method is slow and laborious, allowing her time to contemplate and redefine her relationship to place. She explores her connection to energy and the energy of a place as it creates a vortex of good. It is through this observation that the pieces emerge. The process is therapeutic, a type of mending, paying close attention to the tear or rip. By bringing the parts together, Lowe creates a new wholeness, with traces from the past functioning in the present.
“I hope this grouping of work honors the place where I come from and return to. I am grateful for the roots and the branches that this community has nurtured,” said Lowe.
