Stacey Holloway is an active national installation-based artist and sculptor that focuses on the transformation and growth on individuals as they mature. Through the exploration of storytelling and ethology, she constructs sculptural stills that represent anxieties and fears that collide with a world of ambiguous sub-consciousness. Her work takes the viewer on a journey to discover the idea of “home.”

Stacey received her MFA from the University of Minnesota in 2009, her BFA from Herron School of Art and Design/IUPUI in 2006, and, recently, became the Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2013. From 2009 to 2013, Holloway was employed by Herron School of Art and Design as their Sculpture Technician and Instructor of Sculpture, 3D Design, and Sculpture Foundry Methods.

Holloway has exhibited throughout the Midwest, South and East Coast in galleries such as Wayfarers, Brooklyn, NY; FM Gallery, Chicago, IL; Gallery 924 at the Arts Council of Indianapolis, IN;
Huntsville Museum of Art, AL; and the South Bend Museum of Art in Indiana. Holloway has received distinguished awards such as the 2010 Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship through the Efroymson Family Fund: Central Indiana Community Foundation in Indianapolis, the Juror’s Choice Award at The Red Clay Survey: 2014 Exhibition of Contemporary Southern Art at the Huntsville Museum of Art and the 2017 SECAC Artist’s Fellowship.

The workshop is presented in conjunction with the Visual Arts Achievement Program (March 11), Congressional Art Competition and Youth Art Month (March 11 – April 29) exhibitions.

Echoing Nature: Relief and Texture Plaster Tiles Teacher Professional Development Workshop will assist teachers in aiding students to develop critical thinking skills and in the understanding of the creative process. Holloway will introduce ways of working with relief sculptural techniques. Teachers will learn ways to enhance their visual arts classroom curricula. Each participant will complete a finished work of art. The workshop will explore the role of traditional relief mosaics and the narrative aspects of the natural world. Teachers will use the production of multiple low relief plaster tiles to create a larger mosaic in a collaborative group setting. Through the investigation of reductive/additive carving and push mold techniques, teachers will learn how surface and texture can illustrate a larger composition.

Sponsored by Huntsville Museum of Art, The Alabama State Council on the Arts, Alabama Arts Alliance and Huntsville-Madison County Art Education Association.
