Heidi Preuss Grew presents “Übersetzung” at Hallie Ford Museum

Heidi Preuss Grew is an Oregon artist whose ceramic sculptures and drawings combine animal and human imagery, revealing the multi-dimensional aspects of the human condition. An exhibition of her work will open April 10 and continue through May 16 at Willamette's Hallie Ford Museum of Art, with an opening reception April 9 from 5-8 p.m.

On April 13 at 12:30 p.m., Preuss Grew will present a gallery talk about her work. The talk is free and open to the public.

Celebrating 11 years of creative activity at Willamette University, where Preuss Grew teaches studio art, the exhibition features a range of new work inspired by her research and participation in artist residencies in Germany and Denmark during the past three years.

Preuss Grew has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the U.S., Europe and Asia over the past decade. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, the Sanbao Ceramic Art Institute in Jingdezhen, China, and the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, Czech Republic, among others. In 2002 and again in 2010, Preuss Grew was awarded an Oregon Arts Commission Individual Artist Fellowship. She was elected into the International Academy of Ceramics in 2007.
