Rowan University Art Gallery
September 3 – October 26, 2019 Artist Talk & Opening Reception at Rowan University Art Gallery: Thursday, September 12, 5 – 7:30 pm Rowan University Art Gallery is pleased to present Mending a Reflection, a solo exhibition of Julie Heffernan’s self-portraits, curated by Mary Salvante, Director of Rowan University Art Gallery. The exhibit will be on view September 3 to October 26, 2019, with an opening reception on September 12, from 5 – 7:30 pm. Mending a Reflection addresses the connection between culture, mass media and personal identity through the eyes of one central female figure. Through ten self-portraits, Heffernan investigates what she calls the “shared collective unconscious,” exploring the historical narratives and subliminal imagery that work to shape who we are and how we perceive the world around us. Heffernan’s paintings help us understand how media can influence our behavior and manipulate our perspective. In her large-scale vibrant works, she pays homage to many powerful women by including them in her portraits. Taking inspiration from women activists like Anita Hill and Tarana Burke, Heffernan confronts this bias by presenting what she calls a “different sort of self-portrait,” one full of female spirit, “giving voices to women who have been silenced for too many years by the dominant culture.”
