Biography from Martin-Zambito Fine Art:
Helen Loggie became nationally known for her etchings of the Northwest landscape, particularly the highly detailed studies of trees along the Washington coast.

Born and raised in Bellingham, she attended Smith College and the Art Students League in New York, studying with George Bellows, George Luks and Mahonri Young.

One of her strongest influences came from her studies with the prominent etcher, John Taylor Arms whom she met in 1929.   It was Arms who encouraged Loggie to seriously pursue etching, and they remained lifelong friends and colleagues with Arms proofing many of her plates throughout her career.

Following the example of Arms and other prominent American graphic artists, Loggie traveled to Europe and made numerous studies of architectural details and city streets.  In 1930, she built a house on Orcas Island and divided her time between there and Bellingham for the remainder of her life.

Her exhibition history includes one-woman shows at Seattle Art Museum, 1939; Smithsonian Institution, National Museum, Washington D.C., 1944; Norfolk Museum, Virginia, 1965; Whatcom Museum of History and Art, Bellingham, 1979; Western Washington University, Bellingham, 1993 as well as numerous others.

She also participated in several prominent group exhibitions including the Paris Exhibition, 1937; Venice Biennial, 1940; Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., 1940; Whitney and Metropolitan Museums in New York, 1942; Library of Congress, 1942, 43 and 52; National Academy of Design, N.Y., 1949-1969; and the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers and Engravers, London, 1954.

Among her prominent national awards were the Library of Congress, Pennell Competition, 1943; Chicago Society of Etchers, 1956; and National Academy of Design, 1955, 60, 64 and 69.

One of her most prominent awards was being elected to the National Academy of Design as an Associate in 1949 and then as full Academician in 1971.  The following year she was recognized by her home state and received the Washington State Arts Commission Governor's Award for lifetime achievement in art.
