Upcoming Artist in Residence gigs

I am honoured and excited to share with you that I have been selected as an Artist in Residence by the kind folks at Parks Canada and Haida Gwaii Museum. The residency will be for two weeks this coming July and offers a three person exhibition at the museum for early 2018.

The course of my adult life has seen me following a trail of creative crumbs that continues to lead me to the deeper parts of my soul through connecting with nature and such a lovely variety of people from all over the world. I have followed both my family line and my heart’s path. These two upcoming residencies, the first in Gwaii Haanas National Reserve and the second at Earthskin in New Zealand feel like a coming home to elsewhere, that liminal place of land, sea and the greater past. Of nature and of exploration.

Thank you to everyone who helps with words of encouragement and hope. To collectors of my work and professional connections, to my family and my friends: I am so blessed to be sharing these breaths with you. Haawa. Bless.

Join visual artist Siobhán Humston, a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant award winner, as she discusses her most recent body of work developed during her time as Artist in Residence at Byrdcliffe in Woodstock, New York and at the Ranger Station Gallery in Harrison, BC..

A graduate of Crawford College of Art & Design in Cork, Ireland, Siobhán Humston has called British Columbia home since 2001. Humston’s work has been exhibited in over sixty solo and group shows throughout North America, Britain, Europe and Australia. She is the recipient of a City of London Arts Bursary, Ontario Arts Council grant, BC Arts Council grant and most recently a Pollock Krasner Foundation fellowship in conjunction with the Byrdcliffe Guild Residency Program in New York.

In addition to her Visual Art practice, Siobhán Humston is a classically trained musician who has worked to promote both the visual and performing arts through teaching, writing, and hosting readings events and performances.

Humston’s current body of work Exploring Totem (2013) represents ideas of growth and decay through the displacement and reverence of nature. This series was greatly influence by her recent tenure as the Kent Harrison Art Council’s artist in residence at the Ranger Station Art Gallery.
