Presented by: WISE Hall
The WISE is excited to continue showcasing the work of local visual artists from East Vancouver and beyond. The project aims to increase exposure for participating artists, reinforce positive associations with the local arts community, and increase lounge ambience. We are thrilled to showcase Tom Heuckendorff this month in the WISE Lounge. An official launch will take place Thursday, January 12th with entertainment from Torben Brown.

Tom is a self taught Vancouver based painter of the neoclassical tradition. Taking influence from 18th and 19th century masters, such as Jacques-Louis David and Hans Makart, he has strived to establish high contrast lighting and strong colour composition within all his paintings. Tom has been living in Vancouver refining his technique in oil paints since 2008 adding further to a strong background in drawing portraiture and antiquities. Along with his strong traditional ties Tom takes broad influences; from the cubist painters such as Georges Braque and Jean Mitzinger, to modern artists such as Marc Chagall and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Self educating and learning from local Vancouver artists over the last few years has provided Tom Heuckendorff with a natural development of unique style and character. For his showing at the Wise Hall, Heuckendorff will be featuring early portraiture and fabric studies in oil, cubist abstracts and a few pieces from his upcoming series "Angels".

Torben Brown (performing Thursday, January 12th) is a highly accomplished guitarist from the Vancouver area with a wide range of skills. Seen most frequently singing and flat pickin' in the country trio "The New Shackletons" Torben can also be round playing lead guitar in any number of settings around the Vancouver area. You can expect an eclectic mix of familiar songs ranging stylistically through rock and popular music of the ages. All brought together in a stripped down acoustic setting with virtuosity and originality abound. Torben Brown's shows are not to be missed or soon forgot.
