Jul. 3, 2015: THIS FRIDAY! LAG Opening Featuring Photographs by Heather Gladstone

The Gathering Place at the Hamlet Lopez Village

Heather Gladstone’s first solo exhibit of fine art photographs opens Friday, July 3 at The Gathering Place in The Hamlet. It features images from her 2015 winter trip to Eastern Europe and Morocco. The opening reception, from 5:30 – 7 p.m., will feature a talk by the artist at 6 o’clock and light refreshments.

Heather is gaining a reputation for her elegant, vibrant images. “I particularly enjoyed trying to capture the feeling of different places and people in our travels. The colors and light often matched the mood of a place, and allowed me to capture my vision of its essence.” While seven of her pieces were displayed earlier this year in a joint show with Robert S. Harrison at Lopez Library, the Hamlet exhibit will showcase a larger selection of her work. The reception is open to the whole community.

Heather Gladstone has loved photography from an early age, but only began photographing professionally in her twenties. One of her images was recently chosen for “Harvest: The Bounty of Washington,” a juried show of fine art photography at the Washington State Convention Center.

Raised in Massachusetts, she obtained her Master’s in Social Work (MSW) from Smith College in 2012 and moved here in 2013. She works at The Lopez Island Family Resource Center.
