Welcome Ed Bratton

 

Hand twisted wire tree sculptures.

Our trees are created using copper, aluminum, and tin-coated copper wire of various gauges. We use different types of stone and wood for the bases such as local sandstone, limestone, and a variety of lake shore rocks. The wood bases are either redwood burl or California buckeye burl. Typically the entire sculpture is “glazed” using multiple coats of an epoxy resin.

Our 12th Year Begins

 

HEARTWOOD GALLERY is where you find locally made quality art at affordable prices. From its cheerful sidewalk flower garden and bright turquoise paint job to its funky old time interior Heartwood Gallery does not look like a typical gift shop, but inside you will find what gallery member Janet Greeson calls the “best-kept secret in Fayetteville,” an abundance of locally made quality art at affordable prices Heartwood Gallery is an artists’ collective located in south Fayetteville just north of the intersection of Martin Luther King and Government Streets.

There are no mass produced items here, everything is hand crafted within driving distance of Fayetteville by gallery members who take turns manning the shop. There is always an artist on hand to explain their work or to answer questions about the work of fellow artists. A wide range of art is displayed on the walls and on tables scattered throughout the shop. A selection of prints and original watercolor, oil, and acrylic paintings as well as hand colored etchings and pen and ink drawings are available. Terra cotta, ceramic and porcelain pottery selections range from whimsical creations to unique but practical mugs, bowls and dinnerware. Jewelry choices include stained or fused glass, porcelain, and wire wrapped fossils, crystals and stones. Unusual sun-painted shirts are available along with purses, hats, scarves, mittens, and slippers that are one-of-a-kind creations. Mosaics, baskets, gourd art, woodwork, clocks and truly imaginative lamps as well as greeting cards are also on display.

When gallery members are asked, “What would you like people to know about Heartwood Gallery?” the answers are varied. Fabric artist Suzanne Bullard wants the public to know that gallery members are a widely diversified group representing all forms of media and as local artists the money from sales goes right back into the local economy. Margery Shore, potter and long time gallery member, stated that she would like people to know that Heartwood Gallery is owned by a Anita and Edward Hejtmanek, two artisans who put the environment and family at the forefront. Susan Bell, basket weaver, states that the gallery is the place where customers come to find a special gift made locally.
