Heather Wetzel :: Salvage
February 11 - March 10, 2013
Heather Wetzel’s series of ferrotypes entitled Salvage is created using pieces of recycled aluminum cans. The archaic technology of the ferrotyping process suggests a history created around the objects she makes, and references the rich history of the photographic medium. Wetzel prefers “a slower pace, where one takes time to notice and appreciate the little things, and with that mindfulness, to craft an image that documents the often unnoticed details of one’s surroundings.”
Heather Wetzel teaches at Ohio State University, Columbus. She holds an MFA from SUNY Brockport, Rochester, NY, and an MAH from Arcadia University, Glenside, PA.
Exhibitions and visiting speakers programs at the School of Art are supported by generous grants from the Helen Jones Foundation and The CH Foundation, both of Lubbock. Additional support comes from Cultural Activities Fees administered through the College of Visual & Performing Arts.
