WINOOSKI: Heron Dance Wild Nature Art Gallery Opens

Opening: Friday, March 1, 2013 from 5-8 p.m.
Heron Dance Wild Nature Art Gallery

Music for the grand opening will be performed by The Hardscrabble Hounds and Helen Hummel. Food and refreshments will be available.

The opening exhibit will feature Roderick MacIver’s original watercolors and acrylic ink paintings of wild nature. Rod lives in a cabin deep in the Adirondack woods and is focused on creatively expressing gratitude for the gift of life and the beauty and mystery of the natural world. His paintings are inspired by his life in the woods.

“I’ve traveled a lot in my life, mostly along the fringes of our culture, mostly in the woods and on wild waters,” said Roderick MacIver. “Heron Dance is about what I’ve learned and what I still search for. The new gallery opens a public window into my artwork and books.”

Located at 45 Main Street, Winooski, VT (on the central traffic circle, look for the large flag near the door), the new gallery has large white walls reaching up to 24ft high ceilings. Floor to ceiling western facing windows soak the gallery in the afternoon sunlight. In Winooski's revitalized downtown, about a mile from downtown Burlington.
