Tracy Featherstone is an Associate Professor of Art at Miami University. A SFA Scholarship and Teaching grand allowed Featherstone to travel to Ghana, West Africa in order to initiate a body of sculptural work dealing with the theme of personal environment. The language of home such as furniture, textiles, and construction is used to express the awkward, fragile, and tenuous hold on stability and structure in her work. The sculptures, wearable or free-standing, are frenzied attempts to create order from an ultimately unpredictable surrounding.
Featherstone lives and has a working studio in Hamilton, OH. She earned a BFA from the University of Cincinnati and a MFA from the University of Arizona. In 2006 she received an Ohio Arts Council Grant for Creative Excellence. Featherstone works individually as well as collaboratively with artists Krista Connerly, Denise Burge, Jenny Ustick, and Lisa Siders. She has had solo exhibitions shown throughout the United States as well as in the Czech Republic and China. She has also participated in many group exhibitions in the US and several in Hungary, Croatia, the Czech Republic, and England.
