Opening Reception: GROWTH- Helen Tegeler

The University of Louisville Hite Art Institute is pleased to announce the opening of Growth by Helen Tegeler of Troy, Ohio. This exhibition features works inspired by natural forms and connections between plants and the human experience.  The exhibition will open June 6 with a First Friday Trolley Hop reception from 6 – 8 p.m.

Trained as a glass artist, Helen has expanded to fibers and other materials in recent years to explore new visual and tactile qualities in her work. She is fascinated by nature in transition and seeks to examine moments of propagation, growth, adaptation and death. Growth brings together her love of plants and the human desire to collect, classify and ultimately define life and our understanding of the world.

Helen Tegeler earned her BFA at Bowling Green State University and an MFA from Southern Illinois University. She has exhibited her work internationally and has taught at institutions across the U.S., including recently at the University of Louisville where she was a visiting faculty member in 2013.
