The Mountain Valley Arts Council is pleased to have Heather Baumbach at the gallery this November. By using the repetition of shape, line, and texture, Heather’s work explores themes of community, inclusion, and identity through spatial relationships and visual rhythm. Her mixed media compositions are notable for their deft finish and tactile nature.
Heather Baumbach holds a bachelor's of fine arts in costume design from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Her work is inspired by her travels, her family, and the beauty of everyday life. She enjoys working in fiber, acrylic, watercolor, ink, and in any other medium she can get her hands on.
In addition to art shows in Alabama, she has participated in festivals and exhibitions in Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, Florida and Missouri. She also holds over 20 years of design and production experience in stage, television and film. Her theater credits include The Cherry Lane Theatre, The Theater Outlet, The Santa Fe Opera, The Los Angeles Opera, Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theatre, Main State Music Theatre, Center Theatre Group, Carsey-Warner Productions and Comedy Central.
