COFFEE BREAK: Artist Talks | Heidi Brueckner & Andrew Gimblet

Saturday, April 2 2022 | 10:00a.m. – 12:00p.m.

FREE | In-Person Event

Our Coffee Breaks are sponsored in part by the Jenkinstown Lyceum.

Abington Art Center is proud to host this in-person artist talk featuring Heidi Brueckner and Andrew Gimblet.

Our Coffee Break series is a casual conversation with the artists featured in our exhibition programming. Learn more about the exhibiting artists’ process and technique through a talk and a Q&A. Coffee and bagels are provided for free.

Heidi Brueckner

Brueckner’s work focuses mostly on cultural allegories and norms conveyed through a collage-like juxtaposition of figurative imagery, symbolism, and elaborate patterning. Often the figures personify the precarious, dark, grotesque, and sleazy side of human nature, subjects by which she is continually fascinated.

These topics seem to require, and in fact dictate, frontal, discomforting, and intrusive compositions. Brueckner revels in playing with bright color and pattern, tilted and flattened space, and distorted form to achieve this needed psychological expression and visual activity, but also to create an element of humor and fun.

Andrew Gimblet

Andrew Gimblet is a fine art street photographer from Philadelphia USA. 

“When I am in the streets it is my happy place. I am constantly people watching and looking for a scene, and tend to use atmosphere, light and shadow against the backdrop of my great city to tell whatever story I am conveying. I mainly shoot in color, though I see only the many shades of blacks, whites and grays as it brings the emotion for me that I would like to share with the world. I tend to shoot a lone figure, finding a connection to represent their feelings.” – Andrew Gimblet
