    The artist will be present at a preview reception on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm and at a First Thursday reception on March 2, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

    The sculptures and photographs in Heidi Schwegler’s exhibition reverse industrial production, painstakingly recreating durable, mass-produced stuff into fragile, unique works of glass, porcelain and gold. Even when elevated to heroic new materials and placed on white walls and pedestals, the forms retain the aurae of their original surroundings and of the people who tossed them. Presenting transformations of consumer goods in unexpected materials, Schwegler seeks to create a new relationship between viewers and the mundane objects she refers to as “intermediaries of human desire.”

    Heidi Schwegler (b. 1967, San Antonio, TX) explores a wide range of materials in sculpture, installations, photography and video. Her exhibitions include the Co/Lab Art Fari (CA), Raid Projects, (CA), Platform China (Beijing), Scope Art 2004 (NY), and the Hallie Ford Museum (OR). Schwegler is a recent Ford Family Fellow, received a 2010 MacDowell Colony Fellowship and several RACC Individual Project Grants. Reviews of Schwegler’s work have appeared in Art in America, Daily Serving, ArtNews and the Huffington Post. She earned her MFA from the University of Oregon and is Chair of the MFA in Applied Craft + Design, a joint program of Oregon College of Art and Craft, and the Pacific Northwest College of Art.
