Upcoming Solo Exhibition: The Body, Stranger at VPAG

I’ve been working on a new body of work these past four months to be exhibited at the Vernon Public Art Gallery from January 2016 until March of the same year. While some works were completed earlier in 2015, the majority were created in the latter half of the year for this exhibition. All works are part of my The Body, Stranger series. Please join me at the opening reception on January 14th, 2016 from 6-8pm. Heather Huston e-vite

New Work (experiments with UV printing on plexiglass)

In late May, I stopped by UBC Kelowna to work on some plexiglass prints using their UV inks and drying system to test adherence and layering. I was pleased with the results and will now plan a series of larger works on plexiglass. Many thanks to Briar Craig for letting me use the studio. Shoot him a line if you want to propose a short residency in the lovely Okanagan valley.

New Work – Destination: Serbia

I finished two new silkscreens recently in anticipation of an upcoming exhibition this summer in Belgrade, Serbia. They will be joining a series of my silkscreens from the past few years in a solo exhibition and will then be part of a two-person exhibition as part of the Drypoint Biennial in Uzice.

Collaboration With Jolie Bird at DNA Artspace

In the late fall, Calgary artist Jolie Bird and I collaborated on a postcard for Carte Blanche at DNA Artspace in London, Ontario. This is the result (cut pattern by Jolie, watercolour by me). The postcard has already been sold but you can enjoy a digital version below.
