Soderberg Gallery and Studio -
As the first woman to own a bronze foundry in the United States, Heather Söderberg’s sculptures have earned her regional and world wide attention, including the “Sacagawea, Pompi, and Seaman” commissioned by the Port of Cascade Locks.
Daily foundry tours (call ahead for a schedule). Studio hours are Monday through Thursday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Tuesdays and Wednesdays by appointment.
In 2009 she bought the foundry she worked at and moved it to the heart of the Columbia River Gorge. The move was the catalyst that would propel her work to a meteoric level.“Heather Söderberg’s “Sacagawea, Pompi, and Seaman” commissioned by the Port of Cascade Locks has gained regional and worldwide attention for it’s emotional impact. This piece highlights Heather’s talent as it probes deeply and sensitively into our cultural consciousness to seek those distinctive American elements that together constitute our artistic and cultural heritage. Heather’s open forms evoke a truly symbolic reference to American spiritual growth.”
