Alexandra Broches at the Gail Cahalan Gallery

Hera Gallery member, Alexandra Broches, will be exhibiting her work at the Gail Cahalan Gallery in Providence.  Alexandra will be exhibiting a series of photographs that capture elements of the natural world.  These masterful black and white images are wonderfully designed, inspired visions.  Collections of eggs, bones, and feathers are artfully arranged and edited to provoke a sense of wonder and curiosity in the viewer.  These easily overlooked artifacts of nature become interesting displays of natural patterns through Broches's lenses.

The opening reception will be held on Saturday, May 17th, from 4:00 - 7:00pm.
The exhibit runs from May 14th through June 7th.

Opening Reception For Crossing Borders/Cruzando Fronteras

Last Saturday night, Hera hosted the opening reception for our current exhibition, Crossing Borders/Cruzando Fronteras. The evening was a great success, attended by artists, patrons, and people who hold the issue of immigration close to their hearts. Overall, it was a festive night, which enabled some very pertinent conversations.
