"Fascinators" by Ellen Heck


Jan 26, 2019 to Mar 2, 2019
12:00 PM until 05:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Fascinators, a SPOTLIGHT exhibition of prints by Ellen Heck, opens January 26 at Groveland Gallery. Heck grew up in Austin, TX and studied printmaking at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Beginning her professional career in 2009, she spent seven years as an artist-in-residence at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, CA. Her work is often figurative and project-based. Her recent series and portfolios include Fascinators (2017), Indirectly Attached, and Color Wheels. She currently lives and works in Winston-Salem, NC.

Fascinators is a series of portraits in which the sitters are wearing Möbius strips and other mathematical or paradoxical figures as hats. Reminiscent of fascinators, these forms could only be worn and held convincingly in the two-dimensional world of the print. Using combinations of woodcut, drypoint on copper, and hand painting, the flatness of the figures is contrasted with the dimensionality of their headpieces. A narrative begins to open up between the adorned female figures and the Möbius, used by the artist as a physical manifestation of abstract or invisible concerns.

The artist will be present at the opening reception Saturday, January 26 from 2-5 pm. The opening reception and exhibition runs concurrently with Circling Back by Joshua Cunningham. Both shows continue through March 2, 2019. For more information please call 612-377-7800 or visit www.grovelandgallery.com.
