HERA GALLERY [HERA EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION]

Hera is a proactive community of artists who are passionate about bringing fine art to South County and the larger community. Hera Gallery promotes a professional artistic presence for emerging and established artists who are dedicated to their creative practice. In addition to a full schedule of exhibitions, Hera strives to engage the public through programming such as lectures, talks, film and video screenings, performance and spoken word. Established in 1974, Hera Gallery is a non-profit artist-run arts organization that has continued to stimulate discussion and challenge perceptions for over 40 years. As a small, non-profit arts organization Hera was a pioneer in the development of artist-run exhibition spaces. Originally conceptualized as a venue for women artists Hera is proud of its history of nurturing and supporting the careers of hundreds of female artists. Hera has exhibited the works of both men and women since the 1980s.
