Not Just Another Pretty Face 2019

Program Overview


Charles Heppner

For the past 9 years I have creating a series of composite photographs called “Prayer Rugs.”  Each work is a prayer in gratitude for the tree. My proposal for Not Just Another Pretty Face is to create a unique Prayer Rug work using a tree or stand of trees, which are important to the donor. I would love to share the joy of being in the presence of someone else’s very special tree.  I think the new work would reflect that love and gratitude. Size depends on the needs and budget of the donor. If the location is outside of the Chicago area, travel expenses would need to be considered.


NJAPF HPAC 2018 price list


I have listed here 4 sizes and prices for a guide.  If donor has specific sizing need, I can easily accommodate.  All prices include mounting (I use face mounting to Plexiglass with cleat mounts–very clean look) and delivery to HPAC. Travel expense to visit trees are extra.
