HERA 2010 is a catalog of the work of Hera Gallery artists with an introductory essay by Katherine Veneman, curator of Education at the Blaffer Museum, University of Houston, in Houston, Texas.
Founded in Wakefield, Rhode Island in 1974, Hera Gallery/Hera Educational Foundation was a pioneer in the development of alternative exhibition spaces across the country in the 70s. Hera Gallery was one of the earliest women’s cooperative galleries in the US and is unusual in having been established in a non-urban setting. Although many of these galleries no longer exist, Hera is proud to have not only continued but also expanded our programs, exhibitions, and events.
HERA 2010 presents a collection of contemporary works created by the artists that facilitate the mission of Hera Gallery/Hera Educational Foundation today, 37 years after opening.
