Mother and Child by Harma Heikens, mixed media, 2004 - click to enlarge
I just got an email from the great Harma Heikens (previously mentioned here and here) informing me of an upcoming exhibition of hers opening this Thursday at a great gallery I have to admit I have never heard of before but it looks very exquisite indeed. With galleries in Amsterdam and New York, Witzenhausen has a fantastic line-up of painters, photographers and sculptors.

Death and a nine-year-old by Harma Heikens, mixed media, 2008 - click to enlarge
In the Nursery is a "contemporary interpretation of classic American nursery art" and has a very interesting line-up of artists including Chris Anthony, Tom Bagshaw, Shawn Barber, Scott G. Brooks, Ray Caesar (image below), Sas & Colin Christian, Korin Faught, Harma Heikens (image above), Liz McGrath and Martin Wittfooth. So this should be rather sweet.
I find it particularly interesting to see Liz McGrath rise from the interweb grave. I haven't really seen any new works since 2009 when she started using her mailing list contacts to regularly inform everyone what her husband Morgan Slade's been up to. Something I'm really not that interested in. But OH WELL.
Details below. Please note that the reception starts at 8 PM, not as 7 PM as listed on the website and that the Harma Heikens image only serves illustrative purposes as I'm not sure which of her works will be on show.
