Event Description:
Join us for an evening discussion with Nature’s Nation artist Valerie Hegarty and Curator Mindy Besaw. Taking a close look at her artwork Fallen Bierstadt (2007), the discussion will include a look at Hegarty’s materials and process, with reflection on ideas of American identity and the environment through art.

Valerie Hegarty is a visual artist based in Brooklyn who creates paintings, sculptures, and installations that often address themes of memory, place and history. Informed by the current turbulent state of our country while also excavating from America’s past, Valerie Hegarty often turns the gallery into a dramatic place of change. Her large-scale installation work incorporates a process she calls “reverse archeology” in which layers of painted paper are adhered to the walls and floors of the gallery and then scraped back to create a material memory of a space. She also constructs canvases and sculptures that replicate paintings and antiques from early American art history from canvas, Foamcore, paint and papier-mâché only to falsify their ruination by devices associated with their historical significance.
