Artist Statement: Studies show that art taps in to the same part of the brain as meditation. My work expresses the quality of light and expansion through thoughtful palettes and compositions

Compassion is an important aspect of both meditation and humanity. 5% of every purchase of original fine art will be donated to the coalition for Southwest Elderly and Abuse Prevention.

Paintings by Cynthia Heise
June 2-24, 2017

First Friday Opening Reception: June 2, 5-9pm
