Debra Hayden Drawings in Room L-129

Debra Hayden, having now finished her year as a teacher and having had a chance to breathe, has hung her latest set of gouache, pastel, and graphite pieces in Room L-129 opposite Malvine Wolf's collages. She is a realistic artist who tries to convey the spiritual essence of her subjects. I think you'll get a sense of that in the lovely image at left.

Grace Hessman, Landscape Artist


Throughout February you have the pleasure of viewing the pastel paintings of landscape artist Grace Hessman in our meeting room, Room L-129. She’s a 'plein air' painter, which means she doesn’t paint from reference photos in her cozy air-conditioned home studio. It means she plunks her easel down in the shifting soils of west Texas or beach Florida or the Oregon forest, with boots on to protect herself from cactus spines and driving heat and morning chills, to see, feel, and smell each nuance of the landscape she’s passionate about capturing on paper. When you see her work, I think you’ll catch that spirit. That’s Room L-129; throughout February.
