Momentum Gallery | Artist Talk with Heather Hietala

May 19 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join Momentum Gallery on Sunday, May 19 at 2p for an Artist Talk with Heather Hietala. Her work will be a part of a solo exhibit from May 9 through June 22.
Heather Hietala, an Asheville-based artist, delves into exploring form, purpose, and design across mediums, including woodfired ceramic, wire, and fabric. Her sculptural creations serve as profound reflections on life’s journey, with recurring motifs of vessels symbolizing both personal narratives and universal experiences. Seedpods, canoes, paddles, sailboats, weaving shuttles, and kayaks become metaphors for relationships, interior and exterior self, protection and containment, and transport.
A celebrated multi-media artist, Hietala has taught at Penland School of Crafts, Haystack, Arrowmont, and Warren Wilson College. She has exhibited in the Asheville Art Museum, Wustum Museum of Fine Art, Mint Museum of Craft and Design, and internationally at Wesserling Textile Museum and Singapore Art Museum.
We are looking forward to this artist talk at Momentum Gallery!
