Heidi Draley McFall | Drawn to the Darkroom

October 21, 2017 - January 28, 2018

Visual Arts Center | Jerstad Gallery 

Heidi Draley McFall’s large-scale pastel portraits are personal, haunting and striking. Based on photographs shot on 35mm film and developed in a darkroom by Draley McFall herself, these black and white portraits invite us to contemplate the relationship between photography and drawing, and to explore the shared humanness between Draley McFall’s subjects and ourselves. Internationally recognized, Draley McFall’s work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions at galleries and museums including Annina Nosei Gallery, New York, Leo Castelli Gallery, New York, Paolo Curti Gallery, Milan, Italy, The McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, and The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. Heidi Draley McFall resides in DeWitt, Iowa.
