INDOOR ART EXHIBITS
Located in our gallery at 4055 Roswell Road NE
Title: Visions in the Trees
November – December 2022
Vision in the Trees exhibition showcases large-scale canvas pieces and intimate watercolors from Dallas, Texas-based artist Makenzie Heinemann.
The artist notes, “I make work that references the natural world, but delays recognition. My work follows the tradition of the Sublime through expansive landscapes, but it does not seek to overwhelm. Instead, it exists in spaces like a low hum, requiring a sensitivity for viewing.”
Artists: Katie Hargrove and Meredith Laura Lynn
Title: Mirror Muir: The Cumberland Mountains
August – October 2022
This interactive exhibition is inspired by celebrated botanist John Muir with his walk from Kentucky to Florida. Visitors will appreciate how these artists unpack the complex legacy of Muir through the lens of John Muir Trail, a cobbled together series of paths through central Tennessee.
Tallahassee-based artist Meredith Laura Lynn and Chattanooga-based artist Katie Hargrave unpack the complex legacy of botanist and conservationist John Muir with this provocative exhibition in our Blue Heron Indoor Art Gallery.
Thank you to Morgan Stanley for their support of Blue Heron Nature Preserve art programs.

Title: Luminous Nature
Artist: Steven Anderson
Title: Shared History
This collection shows an expansion of the artist’s Tree Rings body of work, using new materials and forms in painting and drawing to speak to growth, cosmic time, preservation, and destruction. The Tree Rings are a way of growing a drawing: the artist draws circles that closely follow the circle before it, expanding as the rings build and bring the form into existence. Named after the number of rings/years, these meditations on growth and time provide a larger context for our lives.
Artist: Wanda S. Hopkins
Title: The Art of Nature – Trees
“Shuffling through burnt orange yellow and red leaves, one recalls days of childhood laughter, playful smiles as leaves go up and come down to fall back into the pile and be thrown yet again.”
Artist: Erica Angelica
Title: Euphoria of Nature
“The Euphoria of Nature is based upon my spiritual, euphoric, and healing occurrences with nature and is inspired by my love of pop art and surrealism.”
Artist: Laura Davis Shainker
Title: Land, Water, Sky
“I explore the arrangement of darks and lights and the mood of the subject. I’m inspired by the outdoors, so I gravitate toward landscapes, especially the Low Country.”
Artist: In Kyoung Chun
Title: [ Cloud & Table ]
“[ Cloud & Table]: These two words are the keywords which convey my life during a pandemic period. Table signifies eating, talking and working. One important object in my place/studio has been a table. And the cloud symbolizes outdoor life and living nature. I have gotten closer to nature over the socially distant moments.”
