It gives us great pleasure to welcome Hayley Mathers to the Art dept of Edinburgh College, Granton Campus, as the 1st of our 2 Artists In Residence for the 2013-14 academic session.
Just like all AIRetc… participants Hayley is a former student of the Art dept who joined the HND Contemporary Art (Formally Public Art) course straight from school in 2005 and graduated with merit in2007 before gaining direct entry to the 2nd year of the Time Based Art & Digital Film Course at Dundee University. After a year on the course Hayley transferred to the Fine Art course where she was able to fully explore her concerns through drawing and sculptural practice.
After graduating in 2010 with 1st Class Honours Hayley was awarded the Graduate Studio Residency at SWG3 in Glasgow and was a committee member and latterly Chairperson and Treasurer of the highly regarded artist run space Generator Projects in Dundee.
Hayley has already settled in to the AIRetc… studio and is working on a new body of work which we look forward to seeing and hearing about right here on the AIRetc… blog which she will begin posting on very soon! So please check in regularly, follow or subscribe to our blog to make sure you keep up to date with Hayley’s time with us!
