Each November, the gallery of Blue Ridge Arts Council is transformed into a holiday wonderland. Deck the Halls has proven to be a tremendous success over the past 15 years. Hundreds of volunteers participate in this event each year by artistically decorating artificial trees and wreaths inspired by clever themes such as “Owl Be Home for Christmas” and “Silver Splendor.” Last year we had over 100 items, including trees, wreaths, and silent auction baskets netting over $14,000 for our programs. Deck the Halls is a major fundraising event for Blue Ridge Arts Council. We appreciate your generous support and hope you will help us continue this cherished holiday tradition!

In The Gallery: Fiber Art and Tapestry by Helga Hohn-Heiberg

Exhibit Dates: Now through November 3, 2018 (Monday – Friday, 9am to 5pm)

Artist’s Statement: Life is a journey which each of us has chosen individually. Every twist and turn and detour has its purpose but is connected to the previous stage in life. Life is also a series of natural and spontaneous changes; it unfolds as a dynamic process. I am interested crossing disciplinary boundaries in my concept of environmental stimulation with fiber and sculpture.

As an academically trained artist in many disciplines, I have expressed myself in my works mostly in paintings and sculptures but also in fiber arts. About 2 years ago I challenged myself to concentrate only on one medium (discipline), the fiber arts, which has an enormous spectrum of possibilities. I am now ready to show my results of this period of time, although I could expand my journey for some time longer. As you know, an artist is never done with his/her works, it is always a stage of time you have to stop and sign. At that moment I usually have mentally exhausted this work but could continue this communication of this matter in a different discipline.
