Event Details

“LOST + FOUND” Exhibit will run from May 19 to July 10, 2022

RPAC Gallery, located at 410 Main Street, Ridgefield, is proud to present LOST + FOUND an exhibition showcasing the artwork of Suzanne Heilmann and RPAC Resident Artists. Suzanne Heilmann’s art offers the viewer an invitation into a special world. She changes the viewer’s perspective of the environment through her unique ability to show what one might not usually see. Drawing inspiration from what she observes and recycled materials she finds, Suzanne incorporates “found” objects into her work, melding the traditional with diverse.

Suzanne’s exploration and combination of different mediums may make it hard to believe that one person alone could have created her body of work. As a nonconformist, she often integrates previously discarded materials to create unique fabrications full of texture. Thus, the reason she is a self-proclaimed “Textualist”.

Suzanne Heilmann grew up in a family that had to adapt and integrate into numerous cultures and countries. Several languages were spoken at home while the family lived in South Africa, Denmark, England, and Mexico before settling in the USA in 1968. As a young woman, she attended high school in CT where her artwork was allowed to blossom. She graduated early and began working in New York City for a leading advertising firm before attending college at Maryland Institute of Art, Baltimore, in their Fine Arts program. Wanting to broaden her artistic and international background, she transferred to American University, in Washington, DC, before a permanent move to New York City. Suzanne finished her BFS in Design at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, Summa cum laude. Visit www.suzanneheilmann.com for more information.
