Heather Topp: Livid Here / Livide ici – The Art Gallery of Sudbury is pleased to present the first retrospective exhibition of the work of Sudbury artist Heather Topp, opening Thursday, May 25, 2017. Heather Topp has been making art for more than 50 years. She has presented more than 15 solo exhibitions and participated in more than 65 group exhibitions since locating to Sudbury in 1980-81. This exhibition includes several series of works, including large scale papier-mâché figures, clay sculptures, paintings, and drawings. Heather Topp’s processes of art-making often call upon non-traditional media that in turn expand the traditional definitions of the fine arts. Each series of art produced by Heather Topp seeks to create a dialogue with the viewer about the challenges in the social and political landscape of the community we live in. “My art is a conversation,” says Heather Topp, “always changing and contradicting, evolving tensions.” 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. @ Art Gallery of Sudbury – 251 John Street
