featuring the work of Mary Heebner

From May 28th to August 14th, 2020, Bromer Gallery will host “Intimacy,” an exhibition of Mary Heebner’s original paintings and book art that explores the relationships between history, the natural world, and the human body. Heebner practices an artistic archaeology, capturing the timeless, spiritual beauties of relics and landforms and recreating them in sensuous compositions. In addition to her fine art practice, Heebner has editioned seventeen art press books under her own imprint, Simplemente Maria Press, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Many of Heebner’s most recent publications are on view and available for purchase as part of the exhibit.

Bromer Gallery is currently open by appointment during our normal weekday hours, Monday-Friday, 9:30am-5:30pm. Please call 617-247-2818 or email to schedule a visit. Additionally, this exhibition will include virtual tours, artist interactions, and piece-by-piece discussions over the course of the show's run.
