Art at Heaven Gallery

The current exhibition, Dig, opened on January 11th and will be open to viewing until February 3rd. The show features works, by artists Nina Barnett, Marissa Lee Benedict and Allison Rowe, unified in exploring the correlation between gold and oil in their fiscal value. There is an emphasis on the extraction process, as well as how these substances affect the atmosphere and environment.

Here are a few of the pieces displayed at this time, but be sure to stop into Heaven Gallery to see the entire collection of works. It's open to the public every weekend!
