Biography:

Grace Mae Huddleston is an interdisciplinary artist interested in the relationship between humans and the so-called natural world of flora and fauna. Through her work she seeks to explore and represent the various manifestations of this relationship. Grace earned her BFA from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Arts in Richmond, VA where she later went on to co-found Community Room (2014-2016) in an effort to create exhibition opportunities to support art that fell through the cracks of traditional genres (www.communityroomrva.com). As an educator she seeks share her passion for DIY art spaces and projects to inspire students to take initiative and create spaces for their art work. She has taught at The Lux Art Institute in Encinitas, CA, at UC San Diego, and will be teaching at the Sally Ride STEAM Academy this summer. Grace has exhibited work widely in Southern California and Richmond, VA, most notably at Highways Performance Space, UCSD's SME Gallery, Conrad Prebys Experimental Theatre, Gallery 5, and 1708 Gallery. She served as a student ambassador to VCU Qatar and represented her department at the Tasmeem Design Conference in 2011. Her work has been published in the Auctus Journal for Arts and Research, Elbow Room, and Biji Magazine. She has a passion for zine and artist-made books and you may email her to view her collection at ghuddles@ucsd.edu.
