Follow your “Bliss” to the TGAS Spring Art Show with New Orleans Artist Sally Heller

Multi-media installation artist Sally Heller is traveling from New Orleans to build one of her incredible art installations with the TGAS girls April 13 – 16, 2015 for the spring art show, “Bliss.” Her collaboration with the girls will culminate in a life-sized installation, which will be constructed in a space next door to TGAS and on display during the art show.

“This is a first for TGAS because the girls have never done an installation before,” says Executive Director Matt Moffett. “I’m excited that Sally is collaborating with us, not only because she has done prestigious art shows like her installation at Bergdorf Goodman in New York and her “ScrapHouse” sculpture in New Orleans, but because she’s a strong, successful woman artist. I’m excited for the girls to learn from her.”

In addition to the installation, the beginning, intermediate and advanced students will have individual pieces for sale at TGAS during “Bliss.” Original student works include all new oil paintings, a wood and glass reliquary, a handcrafted lamp decorated with Shrinky Dinks and must-see multi-media projects.

TGAS spring art show, “Bliss,” is at Tulsa Girls Art School, 2202 E. Admiral Blvd., on Thursday, April 16, 5:30-8 p.m., with a wine reception. Free and open.
