New Large Plexiglass Works

I recently packed up my exhibition in SNAP’s mainspace. The exhibition featured two brand-new works, part of my large plexiglass series dealing with space, perception and collapsed time. Both works are 6 feet x 4 feet.

Reaching Forward and Disappearing. Digital print on silkscreen, fabric, charcoal on paper, cupboard door. 6' x 4'

School of Craft + Emerging Media at ACAD

I teach at the Alberta College of Art + Design and am fortunate to work in both the School of Visual Arts (SVA where I teach print and first-year studies) and the School of Craft + Emerging Media (SC + EM where I teach printing on cloth). SC+EM has recently started its own website which highlights events, visiting artists, research and exhibitions by both faculty and students – its worth a visit and a snoop through the posts.

The Body, Stranger

I’ve begun working on some new pieces that examine my experiences living with MS and inflammatory arthritis. While I am lucky that my disease is so far on the mild end of the spectrum, it has nonetheless shaped me and brought me into contact with drugs and aspects of medical practice that are outside the experience of many people. I seek to bring my own adventures to light and examine them within the greater context of contemporary medicine. To start, I’ve created some small etchings that touch on the internally sensed aspect of my illnesses. Find new works under my The Body, Stranger page under the Artworks header.

Please Excuse the Mess/Massive Lack of Information/Images

If you are reading this and you are not me, then holy crap I apologize for the crappy state of my website!  I am slowly working on it and I do mean slow.  So its quite a mess, please feel free to visit www.heatherhuston.blogspot.com for a glimpse of my work and what I’ve been up to in the meantime while I quietly organize my work on here.  Hit me up with questions/interesting thoughts/videos that aren’t of cats doing what I’m sure are interesting things to some people at heather_huston@hotmail.com.  In the meantime, please enjoy a recent print:
