1/24/2018 – Heather Lester

Topic: Crossing the Ironman Finish Line

Heather Lester is a personal trainer and life coach who will share her story of crossing the Ironman finish line. Her journey started in 2008 when she weighed over 200 pounds and was struggling with depression. With two young children to care for, she knew it was time to come back to life and set a goal to complete a 5k race. The thought of running the 3.1 miles seemed daunting, especially to a self proclaimed ‘gym class dropout’, but half way through her 5k training, she watched the Ironman Kona Championships on TV and knew it was time to set an even bigger goal- to complete the Ironman herself. This is the story of crossing the first 5k finish line and running all the way to 140.6 miles in Lake Placid. It is also the story of personal struggle, motivation, and reaching your goals no matter how big.

Opening Reception: Coded Messages @ Lockhart Gallery in SUNY Geneseo McClellan House
Jan 24 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The Lockhart Gallery is pleased to announce its first exhibit of 2018 – Coded Messages by Washington, D.C. artist Joyce Wellman. Coded Messages opens Wednesday January 24 at 5 PM, and the artist will discuss her work at 5:30 in the gallery.

This exhibition is exuberant and color laden. Wellman, an abstract artist uses various material and mediums to create paintings and prints. This exhibit hosts two bodies of work Hidden Hands and Number Works. Adrian Childs writes “these paintings map the world through codes, symbols, signs, and abstract forms informed by the memory of [Joyce’s] mother’s passion for numbers and her philosophical views of humanity.” What is important to Wellman is ‘creating a poetic and meaningful art practice’ that is accessible to a variety of audiences. In these paintings and drawings there is the implication of narrative and storytelling that engages the viewer suggesting the natural and supernatural that is available through Joyce Wellman’s visual art practice.

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.
