Hi, Friends! The first Friday in October is just around the corner and you know what that means! Yes, our City Sense Roc First Friday event! This month we have the joy of introducing you to Heather Heffernan, a talented artist who has added her special touch to Rochester over the last 20 years! She graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, started her business, Fine Art with Function, and the rest is history. Actually, it’s a legacy in the making as her work is all around town, in many familiar places. From her website:
“Heather’s work decorates hundreds of homes and businesses around the Finger Lakes area and in other states as well. She has participated in many of the “Animals on Parade” initiatives, so you may spot a horse, deer, penguin, or bench around town adorned in her art. You may recognize her mural work in areas such as Strong Hospital, Dixon Schwabl Advertising Agency, Ventosa Vineyards, the RPO showcase homes, many of the Rochester-area YMCAs and Spot Coffee. Her specialties include murals, trompe l’oeil and faux-finishing. Heather can also provide color consultations and design ideas.”
As we have shared previously, art empowers you to embrace any space and you know we’re all about that! Heather’s talent transcends traditional canvas so imagine walls, furniture, glass, and more! What’s even better? You can have a say in the artistic process! Set up a consultation with Heather and start dreaming. Heather will create your one-of-kind artwork! If that doesn’t knock your socks off, we’re not sure what will.
Some of Heather’s work will be on display at our CitySense First Friday event on Friday, October 7th from 6 pm to 9 pm. so you can see her giftedness first hand! Speaking of gifts, what a lovely treasure her work would make for someone special in your life, or maybe you! #treatyourself.
