The Edwina & Charles Milner Women In The Arts Lecture Series Brought Another World Class Artist to Western New Mexico University.

Heidi Loewen’s RETROSPECTIVE Smoked Fired Porcelain & Metal Sculpture exhibit opened Thursday following her lecture at Parotti Hall.

 With a 6:30 pm lecture at Parotti Hall, followed by a reception and the opening of her show at 7:30PM at the Francis McCray Gallery of Contemporary Art, WNMU students, area residents, and visitors got a chance to experience the inimitable Heidi Loewen.

An artist since age 2, Heidi studied at the Eastman School Of Music, art at Skidmore College in NY, Art History at the Sarbonne in Paris, and Porcelain at the Harvard Ceramic Studio. She has also worked in the Chinese and Japanese Division at Sotheby’s NY, and been a curator at the Spring Creek Art Foundation in Boston. In 1995 Heidi Loewen opened her gallery and studio in Santa Fe, down the road from the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and across the street from the Santa Fe School of Cooking. She will be lecturing on her experience and career as a woman in the arts and exhibiting her porcelain and metal sculptures.

Giada DeLaurentiis from the Food Network, and Samantha Brown from the Travel Network have both learned to throw porcelain with Heidi on their shows. Travel sites consider Heidi’s classes to be a top activity for Santa Fe visitors.

Heidi Loewen has had exhibitions in Paris, Switzerland, Mexico City, and all over the US. She has won sculpture awards at Miami Basel and ART Santa Fe.

This show is produced and sponsored by WNMU Cultural Affairs, WNMU Expressive Arts Department, and Western Institute for Lifelong Learning. (WILL).

The Exhibit will be on display through October 31, 2019.

Gallery Hours are:
Wednesday 9:15AM - 3:15PM
Thursday 3:15PM – 6:15PM
Friday 3:15PM – 6:15PM
