Burien Arts Association Pop-Up Gallery
Now through 8/31/2018

The mixed media works of Becca Heavrin are featured this month at Burien Arts Association’s Pop-Up Gallery at the Burien Community Center, 14700 6th Avenue SW, Burien.

Meet Becca at the opening reception, Tuesday, August 7, from 6:00-7:30 PM at the Center.

Becca grew up on a farm in rural Maine where her family grew their own food and raised animals. She learned to knit when she was eight and kept the family in hats, mittens, socks, and sweaters. “It was the adeptness of hand work for chores or other useful tasks that I hold as one of the most important lessons of my childhood, the others being resilience and survival,” she said.

After earning a BS in Kinesiology and Exercise Science (Outdoor Education) from the University of NH, she spent several years in the corporate world before traveling the New England craft show circuit with her stitched bags and wall hangings. Health issues led her to return to corporate jobs to obtain health insurance, which led her to Seattle.

Becca now focuses on making and selling art.  She has been displaying and selling her works at street fairs around the metro area. Next on the program is giving art classes soon.

All of Becca’s works on display at the Community Center are for sale. Please e-mail burienarts@gmail.com for information on purchasing.

The exhibit runs to August 31 and is open to the public during Burien Community Center hours, 8:30 AM-8 PM, Monday–Thursday, and 8:30 AM-5 PM Friday.Heavrin art
