Join artist Annie Hejny as she shares about her artistic journey that lead her to her current solo exhibition, When the Water Calls Me Back.
Embracing the luminous reflections and cyclical transformations of rivers and lakes, Hejny combines collected freshwater sand sediment with acrylic to share the stories of these places. From the Mississippi River to Lake Michigan, her relationship with water illuminates each canvas as an invitation for us to remember that we are bodies of water too.
When the Water Calls Me Back showcases new paintings from Hejny’s Water Series. On view at the Department of Art History Gallery at the University of St. Thomas, now through December 18th, 2022.
Gallery hours: Monday-Wednesday 9am – 6pm | Thursday 9am – 8pm | Friday 9am – 6pm | Saturday 10am – 4pm | Sunday Closed
