Opening Reception June 25th - 4pm to 6pm

Richard Heller Gallery is pleased to present, Summer 2011 a group exhibition of artists who have not shown with the gallery before. The group is not tied together with a specific theme, however, they are all young talents that deserve further consideration.

Photographer, Sookyung Bae a recent MFA from Claremont College makes large scale photographs in a grid format with repeating images of friends, relatives and people who have influenced his practice. David O’Brien similarly deals with repetitive images of human subjects clustering them into galactic-like constellations. Andre Goeritz, another recent Claremont graduate, makes modernist influenced conceptual sculptures that blur the boundaries between art and furniture and design. Portland Oregon based, Mike Gong creates some of the most amazing wonders you will ever see inside a glass sphere. For this show Mike will push the envelope into the largest and most complex glass sculptures he has ever made. Rebecca Morgan hails from a Pennsylvania farm town, and resides in Brooklyn, NY. Her sumptuous large-scale graphite drawings and paintings on paper depict the culture clash created by that migration.
