Last year, I organized an exchange exhibition between ACAD and Emily Carr in Vancouver (with my counterparts on the coast Beth Howe and Diyan Achjadi). This year, ACAD is creating a portfolio with our allies at NSCAD (with Eastern coast printmakers Mitch Mitchell and Mark Bovey). We will each be shipping our prints at the end of the month and each institution will be hosting an exhibition of the portfolio in March. I was able to take advantage of reading week to complete my edition. I look forward to seeing the rest of the prints in the folio.
I just received two copies of the DNSPE 2012 catalogue in the mail today along with the good news that my print “Returning, Pausing” received the Brackett-Krennerich & Associates Architects Purchase Award. This print will now be in the Arkansas State University Permanent Collection.
A quote from the Juror’s Statement (Roberta Waddell) in the catalogue: “While the screenprint particularly lends itself to simple, clearly defined, flat areas of color, Heather Huston takes advantage of the medium’s versatility in Returning, Pausing, a syncopated arrangement of subtly colored, patterned, and layered architectural planes that fluctuate from opaque to translucent.”
Always nice to hear how other people describe my work and to find a fellow fan of the Oxford comma.
