Ellen Heck: Connections

November 1 - 29, 2014
Opening Reception on Saturday, November 1 from 6 to 8pm

Artist Talk Thursday, November 6th 6pm

Heck’s work is a study of identity- its creation, variability, persistence, and change. Her most often chosen medium­–printmaking–reflects and parallels these themes. This show will feature large-scale abstract works, intimate portraits and interactive projects like a 9-foot artist book, and connecting card game- each a quiet but intelligent examination of human interaction and thought.

Heck is an incredibly accomplished young artist. At only 30 years of age, her work is in many notable collections– including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, The Cleveland Museum of Art, Swope Art Museum, The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, Hawaii State Foundation of Culture and the Arts, and Dartmouth University Library. She has received degrees in printmaking and painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and in philosophy from Brown University. She is currently living and working as a fine art printmaker in California’s Bay Area and is an artist-in-residence at Kala Art Institute.
