Visual Artist Mentor Program: Collaborative Portraits

HEART Artist Guild & Theatre Company for adults with special needs hired our first official Artist Mentor, Quenby Keisler and partnered with Redux Contemporary Art Center this past summer of 2017. HEART members, aka HEARTists are creating stunning collaborative art with Keisler using Redux’s inspirational classroom space. 

Love Frequency 2017 gallery consists of 17 portraits of the HEARTists and a large collaborative multi-media piece on wood titled, Love Frequency. The portraits are drawn by Quenby Keisler and she taught the HEARTists color wash and Zentangle-like pattern making to create their own torsos.  The large scale piece, Love Frequency was made with mural artist, Sarah Stewart. Stewart taught the HEARTists various methods and mediums to create smaller elements to fit into a larger concept. These collaborations created dynamic and engaging pieces. This is HEART's first professional gallery exhibition and we are all so proud of this work.

A Heartfelt Look at Romeo & Juliet

Cast Portraits by Arielle Simmons Photography

HEART was invited by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs to perform at Piccolo Spoleto 2017. Marybeth Clark of Charleston Stage Company wrote, directed, and provided costumes for the 30-minute music and humor filled adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet called A Heartfelt Look at Romeo & Juliet. PURE Theatre and their Artistic Director, Sharon Graci hosted the performances and assisted Clark as mentor & director.

Both shows were sold out and had long waiting lists! We are so proud of our talented actors and our supportive community! After almost 3 years of creating visual and performance art at HEART, we see this event as a milestone for inclusion, recognition and respect for our talented artists and actors with special needs. We thank everyone involved in making this happen.
