Brooklyn-based abstract painter Susanna Heller visited Sackville, New Brunswick to speak to a standing-room-only audience at the Owens Art Gallery Wednesday, November 5, 2014. Heller’s work focuses on the tension and chaos of the metropolis. Staff reporter Emma Bass covered the artist talk and took Heller for lunch and conversation the following day. Heller discusses her process of urban exploration, inspiration-hunting, and visual note-taking.
