Look Around at How Lucky We Are to be Alive Right Now
I think it's safe to say that most people's goals in life include living a rich life full of travels. And that is exactly how photographer Martha Heard has spent hers. In her first one-person exhibit entitled Looking Around: Photographs and Narratives, Heard shares photographs of her travels around the world and the places she has lived like Baghdad, Iraq and Càlig, Spain. Along with her extensive collection of photos, Heard has also written short narratives to give context and further engross the audience in her art. The opening reception on Saturday, April 1, from 5-8pm will have cake because Martha Heard is also celebrating her 80th birthday. The exhibit runs through April 28 at Art Gallery 606.
