Artist Reception, Heather Eiden

Thursday, June 27, 2024 | 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Please join us for a reception with artist Heather Eiden, whose exhibit, Trees and Their Houses, is being shown in our Art Gallery June 1 – August 31.

Heather Eiden, a Milwaukee-based artist who has been creating fine art ceramic tiles since the 1990s, will display her current exhibit entitled Trees and Their Houses. The show is comprised of a body of artwork called House Tiles, featuring an ebb and flow of buildings and nature carved out of clay, uncovering relationships between shape and texture. House Tiles attempt to balance organic and geometric rhythms of lines made with carving tools. This collection of tiles is an evolution of artwork she calls Everyday Icons and Story Tiles, which were previous iterations of her fine art ceramic tile work.

Heather said she loves working with clay as a means to feel connected with the earth. Her education includes a degree from the fine arts department at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, and an art education degree from Concordia in Mequon. Heather also studied architectural tile making at Anderson Ranch Art School in Snowmass, Colorado.

Heather Eiden’s art will be available for sale and a portion of all purchases will be donated to Schlitz Audubon.

Wine and light refreshments will be served. Free; no registration required.
