Naomi Heart & Gina Gaetz - A Duo Exhibit in the Main Gallery
Naomi Hart grew up in the Northern Wilds of Minnesota where the natural world became her education and her refuge. Hart studied printmaking and book arts culminating in an MFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Upstate NY where she combined her love of process with an insatiable need to tell a story.
Hart’s intaglio prints have been exhibited throughout the Midwest and have been chosen for exhibition in Italy and as part of a permanent collection in Indianapolis at the Center for Art’s Non Toxic Print Collection. Naomi has been influential in teaching non-toxic printmaking practices across the Midwest and has consulted with studios in developing safer practices in the printmaking arena.
In 2011 Hart fulfilled a long-standing dream to begin a formal exploration into the world of encaustic painting through a mentorship in Minneapolis MN. This diverse and expansive realm has become her home. Since she began exhibiting her encaustic work in 2013 she has received numerous awards and opportunities for group and solo exhibitions throughout the Midwest.
I am a Minneapolis based abstract painter working with water based mediums on canvas and paper. I currently have a studio space in the Casket Arts Building in Northeast Minneapolis.
My art practice is based around working in fluid layers, each one revealing new energy and emotions. I am inspired by a sense of place, vast landscapes, dreams, memories, and how I can infuse grounded energy and meditative practices into my process. My ethereal paintings work to soothe the mind and help create space for moments of contemplation, softness, and self-study.
