Thomas Heling

Born: November 23, 1948

Died: July 19, 2014


 ArtFest 2014 Festival Committee

  wishes to honor Tom, as he was the inspiration

  behind our conception of the ArtFest, in 2011.



Tom Arrived in Huntley in 2010, and quickly involved himself in the life of the community.  Prior to his arrival, Tom had lived in and around Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  During his years there he shared twenty years of helping and chairing the Oshkosh Art Museum’s Art Fair, which celebrates its 57th year in 2014. (Winnebagoland Art Fair)

 He brought a passion for culture and fine arts to Huntley, and wanted to share his organizational skills with us.  He helped to develop a committee to plan, organize and run Artfest so that it was not dependent on any one individual, and today we are self-functioning.  At the same time encouraged us with reminders that it would take a number of years to become fully established as a recognized Artfest.  Today we are celebrating our fourth annual Artfest, and have already begun plans for August 15th and 16th, 2015.

 

Tom was also an Artist.  He was an accomplished painter, writer and singer


                                                                                            Tom’s Manuscripts:

 

                                                                                       1.    Glen of Trees

                                                                                       2.    Monastic Love

                                                                                       3.    A Journey Dared

                                                                                       4.    and a screenplay, Mist of Grief


 

                                                                                      Thank you Tom, you are already missed.
