ARTIST FRANZ HEIGEMEIR

A graduate of the Kunstschule Augsburg, Germany, Heigemeir has been an active member of the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum (WAAM) since 1976 and an active member of the Arts Society of Kingston (ASK) since 2008.
Heigemeir values creativity over consistency. While he still embraces realism, he is drawn toward
abstraction, with its color fields, freedom of
movement and the discovery of unexpected possibilities. He strives for a
visual conversation with the viewer at a level that a thousand words cannot reach. He does this not to tell a story, but to evoke feelings and emotions that cannot be otherwise communicated.
Heigemeir’s many one-man shows
include the following local venues: The Emerson Resort & Spa, Mt. Tremper, NY, 2011, Ulster Savings Bank, Kingston, NY, 2011 and 2012, The Dyson Center for Cancer Care at Vassar Brothers Hospital, 2010. Group shows include
the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum, ongoing since 1972, the Arts Society of Kingston, ongoing since 2006 and the Kingston Biennial Sculpture Exhibition, 2001 and 2011.
An award-winning artist, Heigemeir has had many honors bestowed upon him including The “International Artists Magazine” Awards 2006 and 2008, The Woodstock Artists Association and Museum’s award, Sheila M. Bloodgood Award 2008, the Robert Orsini Award 2008, the Sally Jacobs/Phoebe Towbin Award 2006, the WAAM Sculpture Prize, 2001, the Yasuo Kuniyoshi Award 2001.
Ellenville Regional Hospital is located on Route 209 in Ellenville. For more information about the Healing Art exhibit or the Ellenville Regional Hospital, please contact (845) 647-6400.
