BoxHeart, an artist run commercial gallery, was first established in 1998. My husband, Joshua Hogan, and I held the simple goal of providing regional artists with the space to exhibit and potentially sell their work. Since opening our gallery doors, we have held over 200 exhibitions for artists from all around the world; striving to maintain a creative atmosphere with an eclectic mix of artwork from emerging and established artists alike. Our continual progression into an international gallery, drives us to carefully select not only the type of art, but also the type of artist we need to build and maintain a successful art community.
Gallery Highlights (selection)
2016 is the centennial of the Convention between the United States and Great Britain for the Protection of Migratory Birds, also called the Migratory Bird Treaty. The Migratory Bird Treaty, and three others that followed, form the cornerstones of efforts to conserve birds that migrate across international borders. In celebration of 100 Years of migratory bird conservation, Philadelphia painter Deirdre Murphy (exhibit '16 with Cecil) will complete a residency at Powdermill Nature Reserve exploring the complex relationships, such as murmuration patterns found in flocks of starlings, to visually represent what subtle patterns changes can tell us about our relationship to nature and each other. Pittsburgh-based painter Ashley Cecil (exhibit '16 with Murphy) spent 2015 partnering with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, the National Aviary, and Phipps Conservatory to complete a self-directed residency creating new artwork from their specimens, exhibits, and florals. The results of Murphy's and Cecil's efforts will come together for special exhibitions that demonstrate the power of artwork to connect people with nature and add beauty and color to our world.
