HEIDI DOMANGUE - ART FOR ARTS SAKE / by Zack Smith

I want to urge you all to attend Heidi Domangue's art opening on October 3rd.

I think this show will be one of the best we have had at THE CANARY Gallery. Heidi is one of the most prolific, talented, and culturally inspired artists i have ever met or had the joy of calling friend. She is inspiring to me, and the community she works and creates in. I do hope you can attend her opening on October 3rd at CANARY.

Heidi is committed to educating us all... To paraphrase her:

'This series is all about saving the wetlands, the fight of the animals to keep it alive, the unrecognized heroes of the marsh, and the relationships of the animals that no one thinks of.'

But, it goes bigger than than. Here in Louisiana we have lost over 38 million square yards of wetlands, and that doesn't seem to be stopping. This series she has made raises the delicate question - with all the land that is dissapearing, where will all the nutria go? Where will all the Pelicans go? Right now the fight is on to save their own habitat from washing away....thus we have:

3D BAYOU BATTLE




For this show, Heidi has experimented non-stop with creating her own unique color palette for painting in 3D. She has donned the traditional 3D glasses to paint these amazing bayou confrontations, and there's only one way to see them...

CANARY was donated 75 3D glasses from American Optics for this show, and it's one you don't want to miss.
