Billy Hedel making Vincennes debut at The Open Gallery in September & October – with additional work at the Northwest Territory Art Guild
September – A New World Order: 1-20-2017
October – Town & Country: Urban and natural landscapes
A New World Order: 1-20-2017 is a body of work Billy created during his just-ended, year-long art sabbatical. It represents one artist’s attempt to visually (and viscerally) interpret the chaotic and tradition up-ending events of the 2016 US elections and the ushering in of a new world order. It is in keeping with a long history of social commentary art Billy has made at various points in his career.

The exhibit opens Friday, September 1 with a reception at The Open Gallery, 329 Main Street, Vincennes, IN from 5 to 8 pm EDT (that’s one hour ahead of Evansville). Other galleries and businesses on Main Street will be open for the monthly First Friday gallery stroll.
