Falling from Grace - Barbara Heller Tapestry Retrospective

May 10 - July 26, 2014

Tapestry artist Barbara Heller has been steadily gaining acclaim for her contribution to the contemporary tapestry scene since commencing her studio practice at the Fibre Art Studio, Granville Island in 1979. The Maple Ridge Art Gallery is honoured to be able to present works signifying key moments in her career that are often linked to war, political aggression and the impact of humankind on the environment. Despite the apparent 'fall from grace' underlying many of her works, there are also suggestions of redemption, and it is Heller's intention that transcendence should prevail in the longer view.
