Woolgatherers: New Paintings by Heather Day


Due to preparations for the museum’s annual fundraiser, the ArtRageous Gala and Auction, this exhibition will be closed to the public March 4-6.

California-based artist Heather Day makes abstract paintings comprised of scraped, smeared, and flooded pools of pigment. The compulsive energy of her work oscillates between rehearsed abandon and careful restraint. Her encompassing murals, large canvases, and intimate drawings study the mechanisms of sensory perception — mining what happens when the body interprets a sound as a texture, or a scent as a color.

Heather will be doing a short residency in the gallery space, painting a mural from February 18 through the 21st. Guests will be invited to observe the artist as she creates a one-of-a-kind mural that will be on view for the duration of the exhibition.

This exhibit sponsored by PNC Bank.

FWMoA is closed Mondays.
