A Line in the Sand | Jacqueline Ganim-DeFalco & Leslie Heffron

Private View by invitation on April 2nd

Gallery hours : Thursdays - Sundays 1-6pm (closed Easter Sunday)

Working on Cape Ann, Ganim-DeFalco and Heffron have drawn their own lines in the sand through keen observation and commitment. The exhibition presents interpretations of the seaside through Heffron’s paintings and Ganim-DeFalco’s Wearable Art.


Along the water’s edge at the incoming tide a line is drawn. On one side of that elusive line is the ever-changing, unpredictable ocean. On the other side, among the sand’s crystals, treasures are revealed - a luminescent piece of sea glass or a piece of a lobsterman’s line peeking out.


“While seeking these treasures, we observe both the beauty and banality of the world, interpreting what we see and feel in new and meaningful ways, and create timely works of art that tell the story,” express the combined sentiments of both artists.

Jacqueline Ganim-DeFalco is a member of the Cape Ann Artisans and a founding member of the seARTS Wearable Art Group. Most recently, her work was included in Rocky Neck’s winter show, Exuberance. The artist’s work is featured in the book Passion for Sea Glass. Since 2002, she has maintained a studio on Cape Ann.


Leslie Heffron is a graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She considers herself a large-scale colorist and is particularly interested in how colors interact with each other on a surface. Her work has been exhibited at the White House, Washington DC; the Allentown Art Museum, Allentown, Pennsylvania; and in numerous galleries throughout the U.S. Heffron works from her studio overlooking Pigeon Cove on Cape Ann.
