Barb Heagy named Artist of the Year
Barb Heagy, the 2015 Artist of the Year at the Suzie Cappa Art Center, will be honored at an open house Friday, February 13, 5-8 p.m. at the Suzie Cappa Art Center downtown.
Barb is a full-time artist at the center. Studio Manager Carla Julius says that Barb started drawing using stencils, but eventually began designing her own images. Her intricate artwork is full of surprises. Among the geometric patterns, she puts people, houses, plants and other objects. “She works on her art all day,” says Carla. “At the end of the day, she doesn’t want to quit.”
The open house for Barb coincides with the Suzie Cappa Art Center’s monthly Art Night. February’s theme is “For the Love of Art.” Those attending will be treated to wine and chocolate. They can try free chair massages by Sara Coady and enjoy a performance by Sultry Shimmy Belly Dance.
Barb will be honored again at the annual Suzie’s Royal Tea, April 26, 2-4 p.m. also at the Art Center. For ticket information, contact Tara Wilcox, 718-6207.
