Opening Reception: Peter Heller and Local Sale 2014

November 21, 2014, 5:00PM - 8:00PM

Join us for the Opening Reception of two new shows at The BCA Center. We will have food, a cash bar on hand and there will be a brief discussion lead by BCA Curator DJ Hellerman. 


On display from November 21, 2014 through January 24, 2015

First Floor Gallery, The BCA Center

This exhibition will feature work of the late Peter Heller. A WW II German Jewish refugee, Peter studied art at Columbia University and made a life in Vermont as a professor at the University of Vermont and Johnson State College. His largely unseen abstract paintings span a 50 year career and reflect an inner quest to capture the essence and meaning of life. A product of post-war neo-romanticism, Peter’s uniquely recognizable style is deeply fantastical and reveals a richness of internal feeling and observation. Peter’s stunning surreal forms and color convey unsettling transitions from order to chaos that leaves the viewer teetering between exhilaration and fear. Peter is survived by his wife and sculptor Alexandra and their two children. BCA is honored to make this rare collection of work available to the Burlington audience and collectors.
