Carrie Dickason is a mixed-media artist whose experimental work is influenced by observations of nature, combined with interests in the constructed environment and consumer culture. Over a decade of professional experiences working in textile and upholstery restoration inform her playful approach to materials and the cumulative development of site-specific installations and objects. Underlying all of her work is a curiosity in the tension between art and craft, in a world where evidence of the hand is oftentimes left invisible by the object’s maker. Carrie’s studio is currently based in Tulsa, Ok, where she is part of the Tulsa Artist Fellowship. She holds an MFA in Fiber, from Cranbrook Academy of Art; and BFA in Textiles, from Indiana University, Bloomington. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is held in public and private collections. In 2018 her work was exhibited at the Philbrook Museum of Art (Tulsa, OK); Arrowmont School of Crafts (Gattlinburg, TN); Blue Star Contemporary (San Antonio, TX); DeDee Shattuck Gallery (Westport, MA); Rio Bravo Fine Art (Truth or Consequences, NM); Oklahoma Contemporary (Oklahoma City); and The Refinery (Tulsa Artist Fellowship, Tulsa). In 2018 she also presented and facilitated creative workshops at Blue Star Contemporary (San Antonio, TX); University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), Center for Creative Studies (Detroit); and St. Olaf University (Northfield, MN). Her studio practice has been supported by The Corporation of Yaddo; The Santa Fe Art Institute; Hemera Foundation; Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts; Vermont Studio Center; Haystack Mountain School of Crafts; and Taliesin West, The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture.
