Exhibition: Painting in Oils by Leslie Heen @ Lockhart Gallery in SUNY Geneseo McClellan House
Apr 25 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The Lockhart Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibit of realist paintings by Leslie Heen. Heen studied with several national artists among them Steve Carpenter, Robert Liberace, and Jeffrey Hein. Leslie Heen’s work is focused on the figure. However, recently she has incorporated the landscape into her body of work. Heen writes: “I am endearing to respond to the images of life that delight me, sometimes frustrate me, frequently inspire me. My goal is to express these impressions through the medium of oil, endeavoring to illustrate the essence of my subject and to capture the light so important to the painting.”  We look forward to seeing the Geneseo community at her opening, the community that Leslie Heen was an important part of for many years.

All exhibits are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery. For more information contact Lori Houtz at 585-245-5841 or Cynthia Hawkins at 585-245-5813.
