Heaven & Earth, a solo Art Exhibit by Shelly Leitheiser
The current art show titled “Heaven and Earth” consists of 26 paintings by award-winning Marietta artist Shelly Leitheiser. It reflects themes of earth, science, imagination and astronomy. The art show is on display now through January 31st at the SCAA satellite gallery in Powder Springs. The satellite gallery is located in the municipal building at 4488 Pineview Drive in downtown Powder Springs. Hours are Monday – Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Admission is free.

Leitheiser is an environmental advocate as well as a fan of science and sci-fi. That is reflected in her paintings depicting science theories in abstract styles, such as “Albedo Effect” and “Erosion” which comment on climate change. Other paintings in the show comment on our place in the universe. Earth is seen as vulnerable in “Moon Over Roatan.” She bridges the gap with her art between real and imagined landscapes by depicting both. The impressionist painting “Cumberland Horses” was based on Leitheiser’s photography from Cumberland Island. “World 21” imagines a world somewhere else, from her imagination.
Leitheiser paints primarily in acrylic and watercolor, and typically combines realism with abstraction. Reflected in her paintings are topics including the environment, wildlife, science and astronomy. She has also been doing figure painting and portraits for several years.
