Leviathan for #twitterartexhibit

I’m happy to say that everything worked out and my special #twitterartexhibit one-off painting featuring my linoleum-block print Leviathan is safely in New York, NY, at the Trygve Lie Gallery where it will be sold for charity!

This year, the myriad and wonderful postcard-art show will benefit Foster Pride and the money will be used to provide art education and opportunities to children in foster care! I am proud and blessed to be part of this amazing show with talented artists from all over the world.

The art this year (and in past years) is phenomenal. You can browse the rich variety of pieces on any of these pages:

Below are some shots of the piece as I worked on it. You may or may not be able to tell, but there are shimmering silver planes in the water that actually shine when you move the painting.

Emerging: Featured Artist at the Bower-Suhrheinrich Gallery, January

Solo show at the Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery, Evansville IN

Yep! I’m happy to say that I’ll be the featured artist in the window of the Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery from January 9 to February 4 (or possibly 5). I’m quite grateful to be given this awesome chance to show off my recent work, as well as a couple of pieces I just finished last night.

(Or this morning at 3am, depending on how accurate you wish to be!)

Wired Holiday Fair!!!

December 13 2014 handmade fair wired cafe evansville IN

Yeah, I’m completely floored, but the fact is that this year I will be a part of this amazing experience. This art/craft show is filled to the brim with some of the best artists and crafters in the area, and I’ll be there with them. I can’t overstate how happy I am.

Here’s the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/752170168174181/

The basics, this is a big art and jewelry/craft sale on December 13th, going on from 10am to 4pm at the Wired Coffee House, RAIN OR SHINE. There’s going to be an immense amount of talent here and I will be bringing my best game, including some new art.

This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up one-of-a-kind, thoughtful, and most of all FREAKIN’ AWESOME presents for pretty much anyone in your life. The prices are always nuts too (me and a lot of my buds here practically give our art away, it’s crazy) so this is a holiday shopping event not to be missed on any level.

Oh, happiness! New shirts up at Threaded Canvas and an announcement

Art shirts by Heather Landry featuring horror art about Lilith, Adam, Cthulhu, Darkness by Byron and a faceless crowd.

Yeah, I just happened to see that my new shirts are up at Threaded Canvas!!

(I’ve been kinda busy)

Anyway, I’m especially happy to see my Darkness linoleum block print on there because I will be launching into a NEW series about the poem after finishing up some jobs…AND IT IS NOW A CONFIRMED SOLO EXHIBITION FOR SUMMER-FALL 2015 WITH A VENUE. I’m going all out on this one. For those of you who haven’t read my earlier posts, I did a series of traditional prints to illustrate Byron’s poem back in 2001.

Now, 14 years later, I want to show myself and one very special fan how far I’ve come.
