NORWICH – The Chenango County Council of the Arts, Norwich, announces the opening of the first gallery show in its 2009/10 season. The exhibit features the works of Haley Hefetz and Caitlin Barret, both of whom received their Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the New York State College of Ceramics School of Art and Design at Alfred University.
Haley Hefetz grew up on Long Island and draws her inspiration from people in her life and the connections she shares with them. Her new body of work focuses on the portrait and the immediacy of human connection. The work celebrates the universality of empathy and invites the viewer to share in this humble equation. Haley currently lives on Long Island and is planning her next bold move.
