Previous Exhibits

I have many of the images online from my gallery shows and I am always trying to add more here. Click on the show name to see details about the show and if the show's images are online, click on the thumbnail to see them. Some of the shows where quite large so if you don't see what you are looking for feel free to contact me with a description of the image and the show where you saw it.

Be sure to check the online Gallery too for newer images, and the Photo of the Day to see what I'm working on at the moment.

First Thursday Santa Barbara - The Food Photography of Bill Heller - October 1 to October 31, 2011
CASA Magazine, Santa Barbara
Part of the Santa Barbara First Thursdays Casa Magazing welcomed the Food Photography of Bill Heller to co-incide with their annual Flan recipie contest and the food theme of this month's First Thursday.
ArtWalk Outdoor Show - September 24 to September 25, 2005
Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History
A juried show, featuring artists from around the country. I have requested the same space as last year, in the grove of trees. If you are new to the show or the Museum, after entering the museum and go to the right. Follow the hallway around, back and outside to where you find a bridge. After crossing the bridge go to the right as far as you can. You will find me back in the grove.

Along the way, you will pass the auditorium where the indoor show is. Hopefully I will have images in there as well, but the jurying for that show is much closer to the date of the show.

I could have requested a "better" space this year since the grove is where the new artists start. But, if it is as warm as last year, the trees make a wonderful cover. And, the location at the end of the path makes a nice little circle where all the artists got to know each other. I am very excited to be attending this show again!
La Cumbre Plaza Art Show - June 4 to December 24, 2005
La Cumbre Plaza, Santa Barbara

the Cabrillo Arts Center
I have recently become a member of the Santa Barbara Art Association which gave me the opportunity to enter this exhibit. A joint show with the Printmakers and the Santa Barbara Art Association. My image, Bee's eye view was right inside the entrance of the Cabrillo Arts Center.

Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History
A juried show, featuring artists from around the country, and my first outdoor event. I had the opportunity to meet some wonderful people, including the other artists, and show a great selection of my work. My space was in the back wooded area off to the right as you cross the stream on the museum grounds.

The Floral Imagery of Bill Heller - August 1 to August 31, 2004
Santa Barbara Public Library, Townley Room (Downstairs)
This show was juried by the Santa Barbara Art Association about a year in advance, before I became a member. The exact room and month were chosen by lottery. Originally, I received a smaller upstairs room in May. However, the artist who was to be in the Townley room in August had a prior commitment and needed to trade with someone. The show featured thirty of my floral images and a few of my humming birds. This was the first public display of my photography. The incredible support I received from those who attended the reception and the show has inspired me to seek out other venues for my images. I would like to thank everyone who attended and gave me such valuable feedback and encouragement! It has meant more to me than I could possibly tell you!
