Artist Reception – Sept. 9, 2016 5-8 pm
Jim Heroux is a professional watercolor artist and an award winning design architect. His buildings and inspired designs can be found in 26 different states. His unique talent and easy going way with people allows him to translate the technical need of a building owner into a built reality greater than the owner ever expected.
Since his retirement from architecture, watercolor painting has given him the opportunity to exceed in a completely different art form. He is a member or the Central Minnesota Watercolorists and has won several painting awards in the South Dakota Masterworks Competition. In 2014 Jim was selected to show work his work in the SD Governor’s 6th Biennial Art Exhibition that toured South Dakota for two years.
This year Jim has looked at heart and soul of Sioux Falls to see and translate what is unique about this wonderful city. This exhibition is just the beginning of future statements about what this city means to him. Jim was born in a small town just north of Green Bay, WI. Yes, of course he is a Packer fan. He chose to come to Sioux Falls when he visited it in 1989 and saw the potential for a great city with friendly, open people. It has been a joy to be a part of the growth and creativity of this city. There is so much more to do to show others that this is the premiere city in the midwest in so many ways.
Jim also teaches beginning watercolor classes. During the Spring, Summer and Fall and has taught watercolor classed in Destin, Florida where he and his wife winter.
