Hung in the gallery's front window is the monotype "Pinata," one of Heitler's few large pieces. For this print, she has smeared vibrant colors including blue, yellow and red in vertical smudges over torn sheets of paper laid underneath the paint. It's fabulous.
The William Havu Gallery's inaugural exhibit is, according to Bill Havu, indicative of the direction he wants the gallery to take. He intends it to be a showcase for the work of some of the best regional artists--and with so many out-of-staters filling up too many of the other commercial galleries in town, it's an idea whose time is way overdue.
Views of Solitude, through December 31 at the William Havu Gallery, 1040 Cherokee Street, 303-893-2360.
