Sierra Sojourn

 New Photographs by Heidi Vetter

On Display from

April 12th to May 30th, 2003

  We are thrilled to announce an exhibition of new work by photographer Heidi Vetter. "Sierra Sojourn" will feature photographs from Vetter's 2002 three month solo trek through the High Country of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains. 

 About the Artist

     For as long as she can remember, photography has been a pivotal force in the life of California photographer Heidi Vetter, leading her into marriage, children, and owning her own business.  For Heidi, photography is a bridge between insanity and balance, a reflection of her self, defining who she is and what she wants to say.  Now her vision has taken on a new voice, a stronger one, ominous, daring, unforgiving in truth, and a reflection of a searching soul.  This drive to photograph, to take chances and to seek meaning in her life, resulted in her decision to undertake a personal quest, and to travel alone with her camera into the High Country.  The body of work that grew from this journey is emotive and inspirational, a testament to one woman's confrontation with nature and her existence.
