DRAWN, 7th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Drawing
April 17 - May 15, 2020
Manifest was founded in-part to stand for the importance of drawing as a process, skill, and discipline, and as a continuing viable product of the creative fine art and design fields. Since its inception our nonprofit organization has continued to incorporate drawing-based programming, including education (Drawing Center), publications (INDA), and gallery exhibits into the broader spectrum of its projects. The artists who formed Manifest in 2004 knew that despite their diverging career paths (architecture, art history, painting, industrial design, photography) they were brought together by their connection to drawing and their mutually intense but multi-faceted pursuit of this fundamental discipline.
Six years ago, in honor of the original spirit of the founding ideals of Manifest, the gallery launched DRAWN as an annual exhibition. DRAWN seeks to survey and present the broad scope of drawing being made today. This gallery exhibit is completely separate from but nevertheless complements, and sometimes shares work in common with, the now triennial INDA publication project.
DRAWN called for artists to submit works of drawing in any media relevant to the practice (including non-traditional approaches), any style, and any genre (fine art, illustration, design, conceptual, realism, etc.).
For this exhibit 151 artists from 35 states, Washington D.C., and 8 countries, including Australia, Canada, Colombia, England, Iran, Italy, Portugal, and the United States submitted 555 works for consideration. Twenty-two works by the following 18 artists from 13 states and the country of Italy were selected by a panel of volunteer jurors for presentation in the gallery and the Manifest Exhibition Annual publication.

Reception: December 12, 2020, 2:00 PM
As a visual artist, Heidi Hogden (USA) seeks to understand the relationship between place and identity through drawing. Her primary research interests include self-portraiture as it relates to location, the examination of place through the language of visual art, and the sampling from historical artworks, techniques, and subjects through a contemporary lens.
Hogden's solo exhibition „Anomaly“ pictures the journey of the artist in different and rather challenging terrains: the spaces depicted are as physically palpable as they are psychologically charged, reworking the motif of the artist as wanderer, adventurer and seeker placed at the very limits of what is endurable.
During her residency in Athens, Heidi Hogden will explore how the self may be placed - or mis-placed - and conceived against an environment loaded with history such as Athens. These works are a kind of new realism that looks not just as how we encounter the world around us, but which depict the struggles that circumscribe the idea of habitation for this contemporary generation. Her solo exhibition will be held at 3Quarters in Athens, Greece.

“What’s your story? It’s all in the telling. Stories are compasses and architecture; we navigate by them, we build our sanctuaries and our prisons out of them, and to be without a story is to be lost in the vastness of a world that spreads in all directions like arctic tundra or sea ice.”
– Rebecca Solnit, The Faraway Nearby
Climate explores artwork revealing stories of surroundings and the evolving circumstances of our geography. Human interactions with the environment can be subtle, significant, temporary, and lasting forming a paradox that can in some cases cannot be solved or erased. This exhibit will survey current creative engagement of spatial and temporal visual ideas by juxtaposing fragments of images, objects, ideas, and forms surrounding the larger theme of climate.

Art & Life with Heidi Hogden
VoyagePhoenix; Thought-Provokers Series
Excited to be interviewed by Robert Williamson in Voyage Phoenix!
Today we’d like to introduce you to Heidi Hogden.
Heidi, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
As a bit of a background, I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin helping my father plant trees and raising animals. My passion for art came from my grandmother, a writer and my mother, a landscape painter. On a regular basis, I observed my parent’s commitment to the arts and the land.
I went on to undergrad at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and later to grad school at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in affiliation with Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts. It was here that I learned to tell powerful stories through visual art.
After graduate school, I decided to pursue a commitment to my career as a professor in higher education which brought me from Boston to South Dakota, and Arkansas to Arizona, all while maintaining my creative art practice. In the summer of 2017, I moved to Phoenix for an Assistant Professor of Drawing position at Arizona State University.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
My creative work centers on the theme of autobiography and place. My work casts a light on my personal encounters with the places I live or have lived–the places I call “home.” This includes my childhood home in the township of Franklin, Wisconsin, and my new home in the southwest desert of Phoenix, Arizona. Each location presents their unique geography and elicits a specific response from me creatively. For example, my home in Wisconsin evokes complex feelings and depictions of remembrance while Phoenix conjures immediate and foreseen experiences of the suffering environmental climate.
In my most recent project, I tell stories of my personal encounters with the Southwest desert through graphite drawings and gypsum cement sculptures. I use self-portraiture in highly-detailed desert settings, invaded by humorous narratives that seem almost too strange to believe. By providing the viewer this particular lens, I create mysterious predictions of the future, one without water, without protection from the sun, or without the skills needed to survive, thereby stimulating the viewer to consider the consequences of climate change.
How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
Being an artist takes perseverance. It is crucial for artists to regularly make, show and present their creative work while continuing to be inspired. Its a challenging balance for me, because it takes an immense amount of time to create my work. I can spend hours, days, and even weeks in my studio apartment rendering technical details. But, art does not live or engage people in a bubble. It is equally important for me to get out and see other artist’s exhibitions, go out into the landscape and take photographic references, teach my students, or invite people into my studio to talk about my work. It ultimately feels liberating to have the determination to create something new and share it with the world.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
You can find my work online at www.heidihogden.com. I update the newsfeed on my website for upcoming exhibitions locally, nationally, and internationally. You can support my work by coming to an opening if you live nearby. I am currently preparing for a solo exhibition at the Fine Arts Center on the campus of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas in September.
In, On, and Of Paper
January 18 – March 9, 2019
In this exhibition, Bentley Gallery features 22 artists who recalibrate the limits of the traditional paper surface, breaking boundaries and challenging preconceived notions of materiality. They explore form, sustainability, language, gender, architecture, spirituality, psychology, fashion, genealogy, and modernity.
Paper, as a viable surface, whether it be for writing, calligraphy or drawing, came into being in China during the Eastern Han Period (25 – 220 CE) with the advent of woven plant fibers, later refined in the 13th Century with paper manufacturing utilizing watermills, only to be fully realized in the 19th Century with the invention of the wood-based papers that we use today.
Paper as a drawing surface was traditionally used as the first step in the preparation of a work of art in another medium. i.e. painting, yet drawing as a singular expressive technique in and of itself gained significance in the early part of the 20th Century. In terms of contemporary art practice, works made on paper have the advantage of immediacy and fluidity of line and form, while also suggesting a more informal gesture and the impulse toward broader improvisation and experimentation.
Paper has contained within it both the advantages and challenges of being a mutable surface, a less rigid and predictable substrate, allowing for greater exploration and variation within the larger work as a whole, thus allowing for a greater sense of whimsy, freedom, and improvisation in the initial creative process.

365 Artists, 365 Days
August 7, 2014
Briefly describe the work that you do.
My recent body of work consists of a series of graphite drawings on paper that investigate the area around my childhood home in the township of Franklin, Wisconsin. Each drawing presents a unique interpretation of the land. The imagery for my drawings are inspired by direct observational experience, memory, and photographic source material (including images from digital motion cameras used for hunting). Through the process of drawing, I revisit the landscape of my childhood as it was, as it is and as I imagine it to be. My subjects range from the intimacy of a found bird’s nest to broader landscape scenes of life-size animals and humans.
At what point in your life did you decide to become an artist?
Art was ingrained in me. As a child, I participated in the art classes my mother taught out of our home. I filled with excitement every time I learned a particular drawing or painting technique during a lesson. The classes also meant that there were artists coming into our home and getting excited about their artwork. I had experiences creating, thinking, and talking about art alongside these creative people. From a young age, I knew that I wanted to be an artist and teacher. This drive has lead me to where I am today.
Tell us a little about your background and how that influences you as an artist.
I have always had a fascination with the land and environment. From outdoor activities, to painting outdoors, or helping my father plant trees, the land has been an essential source of passion and inspiration for me. What I did not realize until moving to Boston was how important the specific land in Wisconsin is to me. My memories, ideas, and my emotions were connected to this specific place. As research for this body of work, I visited my home in Wisconsin, photographed the land, and communicated with my family about their attachment to our farm, their hunting rituals, and the animals on the land.
What types of conceptual concerns are present in your work? How do those relate to the specific process(es) or media you use?
This work has enabled me to express my own personal narrative as well as reflect on what ‘home’ means and how it is linked to specific ideas of place. Each drawing interweaves the present moment mixed with a somber meditation on the past. My memories of home are full of nostalgia, something I have tried to imbue in these works.
We once heard Chuck Close say he did not believe in being inspired, rather in working hard everyday. What motivates you in your studio practice?
Sometimes a single work will take months to complete because of it’s scale and/or detail. In my studio, I draw and write about my work, while trying to maintain my patience. I try to not get distracted while I am drawing and often listen to the constant buzzing of the tv or radio in the background to stay focused. I take a photo of the progress of my drawing at the end of each day in order to look at it later when I am off doing other things. It is how I stay involved in the progress of the work when I am not physically at the studio. Watching as the drawing emerges on the paper is motivation for me to come back and continue working.
What artists living or non-living influence your work?
Vija Celmins, KiKi Smith, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and George Slaw have had the biggest influence on my recent work. I feel that these artists have a genuine and deep connection to the land in their work. I am also inspired by the expansive landscapes of the Hudson River Painters and Joseph Mallord William Turner.
When you are not making art what types of activities and interests do you engage in?
The main activity that I do when I am not creating art is teaching. I gain a sense of fulfillment from teaching various forms of painting and drawing and talking about art every day. I want my students to have meaningful experiences with art because it has played such a big role in my life and I am able to share my passion with them. My students inspire me, which consequently motivates me to make my own work.

"Boston's Best Up-and-Coming Artists"
July 23, 2012
By Shelly Barclay
"The Boston art scene is long established. However, with museums like the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the atmosphere was one of appreciating the lates and the greats. Today, the underground art scene is exploding and emerging artists are finding homes in the many studios that are now spreading out in and around Boston. Furthermore, with the legalization of tattooing in Massachusetts, the mediums in the city are more diverse, allowing the best and brightest up-and-coming artists of Boston to make names for themselves."
"Heidi Hogden is proving herself as one of the most promising recent art school graduates in Boston. Her current thesis exhibit at the Tufts Aidekman Arts Center is a collection of large-scale drawings that highlight the impressions of her birthplace in Wisconsin. They include landscapes, people and animals. Her fans do not have long to wait to see more from her after her exhibit ends at the MFA, as she has another exhibit at the Beland Gallery starting just a month later. Heidi Hogden is shaping up to become a staple in Boston."

"Heidi Hogden’s large-scale graphite drawings depict scenes from her Wisconsin home, specifically animal life and the surrounding landscape. Ultimately, an exploration of memory and longing, these meticulously executed drawings bring the viewer into the intimate world of Hogden’s home place - two deer fighting, a fawn left for the day by her mother, tucked into a nest of camouflaging grasses, a view of the sky up through prairie grass." - Cathy McLauren, Curator

"Six Art School Grads To Watch"
Sunday, April 29, 2012
By Cate McQuaid
"Hogden titles her thesis show "42.88°N, -88.01°W," the longitude and latitude of her childhood home in Franklin, Wis. "I wanted to offer different vantage points on the landscape of my home," she says. The work is about memory and longing."
"One haunting large-scale drawing looks up at the sky through a silhouetted prairie grass. Another captures a hunter -- Hogden's brother, Eric -- on the family land. She renders him in a camouflage jacket in an early morning fog. The pattern of his cloths plays against the flutter of grass and leaves behind him. Pine trees in the distance shift slyly from pale to dark, describing forms, then negative space. "Drawing is raw, it's immediate, and every mark you make is permanent," she says."
"Hogden has work in "Topographies of Space Between Somewhere and Nowhere," at the Museum of Fine Arts through Aug. 26, and will have an exhibit at the Essex Art Center in Lawrence in the Fall."
Topographies of Space: Between Somewhere and Nowhere
Museum of Fine Arts Courtyard Gallery
March 1 - August, 2012
Artist Talks: May 2, 5:00 - 7:00 PM
For centuries the subject of “landscape” has offered artists endless possibilities for interpretation. The works presented here are at once investigations of actual physical space, psychological space, and the space of memory and fantasy. The five participating artists explore the contemporary landscape, both real and imagined: its stillness and constantly changing nature, the mark of lives lived, and ultimately, the relationship of humans with environment. In these works they provide an opportunity to reconsider the topography of the space in which we live.
Co-curated by Museum School graduate students Laura Fischman and Heidi Hogden.
Included in the show are students:
Maddy Ahlborn, (BFA, 3rd year)
Laura Fischman (MFA, 2nd year)
Heidi Hogden (MFA, 3rd year)
Chien-ning Liao (MFA, 2nd year)
Maia Lynch (MFA, 2nd year)
"Multimedia Art Takes Over Tufts Gallery"
The Tufts Daily
April 25, 2012
By Anna Majeski
"The work of Heidi Hogden, "42.88°N - 88.01°W," presents a memory-portrait of Hogden's hometown, Frankin, Wisconsin, through a series of hyper-detailed graphite drawings. The five drawings depict wildflowers silhouetted against a sky, a large-scale image of a hunter carrying a crossbow, two stags fighing and two other, smaller images of deer. the dreamlike images, each named only by the specific date and time, are based on photographs the artist took of different spots around her hometown. The "portraits" of Franklin are thus twice removed, mediated by the lens of a camera and reworked by the artist at a later time."
"One striking image, "10/15/2011 4:35 PM" shows a male hunter grasping a crossbow and dressed in camouflage. He stands in a field edged with trees, and though he faces us aggressively, grasping his weapon behind his back, the viewer cannot discern the true direction of his gaze, and his face itself remains hazy and indistinct. His portrait, like the others in Hogden's work, is foggily rendered and gestures towards Hogden's own perception of her town and the relationship between townsperson and landscape."
