H is for Heritage Gallery West
No photos in the art galleries fare very well in photos taken by hobby photographers like me. Lighting in our local galleries is not ideal, and flash often creates white spots or reflections when work is framed under glass.
The only ideal way to see art is to go to the galleries and see it up close with your eyes. So next time you are downtown, stop by Heritage Gallery West. You can see more of their artists' work and a bit about them on the website I just linked to. Some of the artists whose work was in the gallery were familiar to me, but many were new discoveries.
Although much of the work I saw displayed was painting, I also found sculpture. Vel Miller had a sculpture on display the day I was there, and I saw several others. Since work that is sold is replaced quickly with new offerings, you never know quite what surprises will be there when you come in. That's why you should visit often.
