Art is an extension of our culture and communities, serving as a vessel for the visual definition of our times. Art is not a luxury; it is a necessity. My mission is to foster innovative artistic expression and provide a sanctuary for the creative process and its importance and role in the redefinition of culture. Gallery Heist will be a place for artists to gain exposure and develop their careers that will encourage freedom of expression and experimentation within their work and artistic ideas. The walls of Heist will house work that is representative of the contemporary generation, offering a venue for artists who challenge and analyze our social and cultural responsibility, traditions, and behaviors; specifically those who are leading the front of a conscious art movement.
In an effort to encourage and support this conscious art movement, I have opened Heist, and hope that you will choose to be a part of it.
