Artist in Residence | Exhibition

  • Arts Letters & Numbers 1543 Burden Lake Road Averill Park, NY, 12018 United States (map)

Photography, installation, painting, ribboning, dancing, music, film, writing, baking.. It's all happening in the House on the Hill these days. This Saturday, the current long runners in our Artist in Residence Program, Sarah Gallina and Heather Martinez, will share some of the work they have created over the last weeks.

At 6:20pm, Heather will invite participants to a Panarchy & Relationship Mapping: a human geography experiential and learn how Panarchy can enrich their current and future states of being. "Consider for a moment, Panarchy as a form of personal governance. This adaptive cycle is frequently used in personal understanding and to scale human and natural systems. By applying the methodology personally, one can increase self-awareness on a topic, relationships with others, or role within a group or organization."

Come experience their work, meet them, meet the other residents and stay around for the Concert by Tilted Arc.

Sarah Gallina is a conceptual artist and a context maker. She works in sculpture, installation and photography. Forming a relationship among the three lays out a landscape for play, performance, and investigation. Once burrowed into a layered world, she believes the digging and filling, the wavering and steadying of good conversation can begin. Writing is a key part of the process. Pulling from notebooks of poetry and playwriting, visual worlds rise up.


Heather Martinez walks on the edges of both the visual arts and commercial art worlds. She builds bridges through co-creation and collaboration no matter the project, subject or assignment. Process and design are her focus and how she brings value to the client and viewer.

Heather studied printmaking, ceramics and alternative process photography at Baker University. She has workshopped many of her concepts at Santa Fe Workshops and with master photographers, calligraphers and signpainters. She pulls from her 20-year career as a graphic designer to translate the creation of glyphs to other visual practitioners and draws from her knowledge of change management models to inspire artists to thrive in their careers.
