In 2015, Heather's first gallery exhibition began with the Seymour Art Gallery in Deep Cove.  The show was titled 'Discovery Fire' and featured a number of up and coming Canadian artist's works. Including Heather's hemp and acrylic painting titled "Cinder"  During this show, she met a renowned local artist named Ben Lim.  He exclaimed how he admired the technique of her particular art piece.  She embraced his kind remarks, and made every effort to explore new and creative ways to incorporate the hemp into her paintings.  And this style and creative technique has brought new meaning into her work.

Heather Curry's career with the FCA Gallery began shortly thereafter.  Her style is best known for the use of hemp & acrylic, within an impressionist landscape style.  She also works with Indian Ink and oil based paints.  Heather does not limit herself to any particular medias, as she is always creatively exploring.

Examples of her accomplishments with the FCA Gallery, as follows:

Heather's acrylic impressionist painting titled 'Eden' was an immediate success, and sold days before it was given a chance to be displayed.  'Eden' was kindly accepted, and made an online appearance for the FCA Gallery 'Limitless 2016', from June 1 to August 31, 2016

Her painting titled 'Northwest Summit', was published and displayed for the juried FCA Gallery's "AIRS 2016" magazine and exhibition, from October 4th to October 23, 2016

Artist Statement

Heather's experiences through education, work and travelling, have lent to her growth and creativity as an artist.  And as a naturalist, Heather is inspired by biodiversity and the ever-changing landscape, which is due in part to the effects of climate change.  Heather incorporates hemp twine into her acrylic & Indian Ink works, which alludes to natural tree formations.  The paintings are a gentle reminder that we should never overlook the beauty of nature.  These paintings also serves as a message to remind ourselves why we should cherish the world we live in.
