Foothills Academy is pleased to announce an exhibition of the art of Heidi Jung and Grant Williams, with an opening reception Friday, March 12, from 6-9 p.m.. Both local artists have been substantially involved in the growing Denver art scene for many years.

Heidi is a Denver native whose works grace walls nationally and internationally.  Kelsey Grammar and Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia own some of her pieces.  She exhibits locally at the Ironton Gallery, part of Denver’s growing River North Art District (RiNo).  Incorporating ink, charcoal and photographic elements, Heidi’s paintings are full of detail and movement to interpret her love of plants and insects.

Grant Williams earned a BFA from the University of Denver in printmaking in 1991. He has exhibited prints,
drawings and sculptures at Plus Gallery, Open Press, The Arvada Center, Space Gallery, Chicago’s Workshop Print Gallery and The Amity Foundation.   His most recent series of drawings, “Fall”, explores the laws of gravity.

Heidi will also visit our campus Thursday, March 11 to do a workshop with some lower school students.  We are excited for this opportunity and encourage you to come to the opening and bring your friends.  Heidi is donating 25% of sales of her paintings to the school.
