Heron Dance explores the beauty and mystery of the natural world through art and words. It is inspired by a love of wild nature. A close connection with the natural world, with beauty and mystery, can contribute a sense of peace to our lives.
The underlying theme of all of this work is that by opening ourselves up to the beauty and mystery around us, we gain an appreciation for the gift of life, the Great Dance of Life. Heron Dance is an expression of gratitude for that gift.
Much of the work is based on the art and writing of Roderick MacIver, a nature artist whose home and studio is located in the Split Rock Wildway, a several thousand acre nature preserve in Adirondack Park.
Heron Dance is pleased to offer free subscriptions to their e-newsletter, A Pause For Beauty. Each issue contains a new Roderick MacIver painting and a thought on the gentle arts of life. Click here to sign up.
