Previous Shows: 2014: Soft Eyes: Travis Head
Travis Head (b. 1980, Portsmouth, VA; lives Blacksburg, VA) makes drawings primarily rooted in the notion of souvenir. His works commemorate actual lived experiences and those that might be better described as virtual, in equal measure.
Head’s work is included in the Drawing Center’s Viewing Program and his drawings and artist’s books have been exhibited throughout the United States. His collective, The Fylfot Fellows Correspondence Club, has exhibited nationally, as well as in Norway and Qatar.
Head has been awarded residencies at Yaddo, Ox-Bow, Vermont Studio Center, Kunstnarhuset Messen, and Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. His work has been discussed in The Washington Post and reproduced in Syracuse University’s journal Stone Canoe and Manifest’s International Drawing Annual 7. He holds an MFA from the University of Iowa and a BA from the University of Mary Washington and is an assistant professor at Virginia Tech’s School of Visual Art.
