Brought up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Heidi Jung as an artist has naturally been drawn to a subject matter most timeless and familiar to her. Through draughtsmanship and technique acquired over the years in both college and career, she has brought an extraordinary and authentic approach to drawing. The ethereal effects she achieves with inks, charcoal, erasure and grattage might remind the viewer of the spontaneity of darkroom photography; indeed, photography was originally the emphasis of her arts degree before committing to drawing. These hand-rendered effects are achieved by way of similarly unpredictable processes, and this 'darkroom-aesthetic' is readily seen throughout the textures and markings of her compositions.   b. 1974 Denver, Colorado Education 1997 BFA, Metro State, Denver, Colorado   Selected Solo Exhibitions 2016 Denver Botanic Gardens, Colorado 2016 G44 Gallery Colorado Springs, Colorado 2015 Michael Warren Contemporary Denver, Colorado 2014 G44 Gallery Colorado Springs, Colorado 2014 Ironton Gallery Denver, Colorado 2013 Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities 2012 Ironton Gallery Denver, Colorado 2011 Sellars Project Space Denver, Colorado 2011 City of Denver, DIA, Denver, Colorado 2010 Sellars Project Space Denver, Colorado 2010 Ironton Gallery Denver, Colorado   Selected Group Exhibitions 2014 Michael Warren Contemporary Denver Colorado 2011 City of Denver, DIA, Denver, Colorado 2011 Abend Gallery Denver, Colorado 2010 Hinterland Denver, Colorado 2010 The Dairy Center for the Arts Boulder, Colorado 2010 City of Denver, DIA, Denver, Colorado 2010 Center for Visual Arts, Denver, Colorado 2010 Sellars Project Space Denver, Colorado 2010 Riennial Denver, Colorado 2010 Ironton Gallery Denver, Colorado 2009 Worth Vail, Colorado 2009 Sellars Project Space Santa Fe, New Mexico 2009 Ironton Gallery Denver, Colorado 2008 Rule Gallery, Denver, Colorado 2008 Ironton Gallery Denver, Colorado 2007 Ironton Gallery Denver, Colorado 2006 CASA Cares Invitational Auction Scottsdale, Arizona 2005 Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities Arvada, Colorado 2004 Lee King Gallery Denver, Colorado 2003 Ironton Gallery Denver, Colorado 2002 Eckenroth Gallery Vail, Colorado 2001 Fresh Art Gallery Denver, Colorado 2000 Fresh Art Gallery Denver, Colorado 1999 Fresh Art Gallery Denver, Colorado 1998 Night Hawks Gallery Denver, Colorado 1997 Walter Whitkiser Gallery New York, New York   Public Collections Halcyon Hotel Denver, Colorado Four Seasons Hotel San Diego, California Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, Colorado St. Regis Hotel Aspen, Colorado Hummingbird Lodge Vail, Colorado
