IN CONVERSATION
Join TOPO/GRAPHY artists for an overview of selected projects which sets the stage for an evolving discussion of the intersections of materials and process, craft and aesthetics in their diverse practices.

Mary Heebner, Brian Hollister and Steve Schmidt
Saturday, July 23, 2011/ 4:00 PM

Mary Heebner creates mixed media pieces, interpreting landforms, maps and antiquities with the human form.  Exhibited widely, her work is in numerous private and public collections including the SFMOMA, The National Gallery of Art, UCLA Special Collections, the Getty Research Institute and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.

Brian Hollister earned his MFA from UCLA and maintains an active studio in Los Angeles.  A passion for the physical beauty of nature inspires his serene yet powerful large-format paintings which are luminous, richly colored, and expressively rendered.  Hollister has regularly exhibited with Carl Berg and Ruth Bachofner galleries.

Steve Schmidt is a self-trained artist and Southern California native who works with found objects, re-contextualizing and transforming them into explorations of material integrity rooted in time and place. A strong minimalist aesthetic threads throughout his artwork which has been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout California.
