Michèle Heibel: Making Time



Exhibition dates: 8 April – 28 May 2023
Official opening event: 6pm, Friday 14 April 2023 
Join us for a free artist talk with Michèle Heibel on 22 April, 11am

'Making Time' is a collection of works that seek to bring the viewer back to the ‘simpler times’ that are so often reminisced about. With her delicate miniature scenes, Heibel seeks to convey the idea that moments such as these do not have to be bound to any particular point in history, or time of life. That these moments can, in fact, still be found here today in our modern world.

One just has to take a step back, draw a breath and make time.

Born into an artistic Swiss-German family in 1972, Heibel spent most of her childhood years in Switzerland’s Bernese countryside. In 1983, after extensive travels, her family made the decision to settle permanently in Australia. She attained her Diploma of Graphic Design at North Sydney’s Billy Blue School of Graphic Arts in 1991 and worked as a designer for the following eighteen years. Now based in the Hunter region, Heibel has returned to her artistic roots and that familiar rural lifestyle, where she creates delicate artworks on black clayboard using only a pin. Her award-winning works possess a whimsical quality that often belie the serious message within.
