For those of you looking for credentials to make us legitimate, look no further. Heather Wetzel has all of them. You may want to grab a snack while you work through this list:
- The 2011-2012 Post MFA Fergus Family Fellow in Photography
- Master of Arts & Humanities from Arcadia University
- Master of Fine Arts in Visual Studies from the Visual Studies Workshop
- Completed the University of Iowa Center for the Book Graduate Certificate in Book Arts Technologies
- Attended Review Santa Fe as a scholarship recipient
- 2012 Photolucida Critical Mass Finalist
- Work currently exhibited at the Anzenberger Gallery in Vienna, Austria
All of these awards and this recognition is because Heather is an artist working in historic photographic processes, hand papermaking, and book arts. And clearly, she’s pretty awesome at it. So awesome, in fact, that she is a lecturer in the Art Department at The Ohio State University, shaping and molding young minds. Now that she is joining us as an instructor, she can shape your mind too!
If you’re looking to slow down in a world that keeps getting faster, Heather can help bring you back to a simpler time. She works with materials that are more labor intensive and incorporate a wide array of sensory engagement. This approach delivers a thorough sense of satisfaction that energizes Heather as much as it does her students. You can read more about Heather over at her about me page.
