Head

Shelby Head is sculptor who is known for her ability to connect her accomplished form with social content. She constantly experiments and challenges herself to create work using new materials in order to extend her visual vocabulary as well as content. Head has worked in public art and has been widely exhibited in galleries, alternative spaces, and art fairs. Recent solo exhibitions include Alvarez Gallery (Connecticut), Cloyde Snook Gallery (Colorado) and El Pueblo History Museum (Colorado). She is the recipient of numerous art residencies, fellowships, and grants: Artist’s Resource Trust Grant, Jentel Artist Residency Fellowship, VSC Merit Grant art residency at Vermont Studio Center, CT Artist Fellowship Grant, and SLV Social Practice Arts Residency sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. Sculpture Space’s Review Panel and Board of Directors selected Head for their 2022 Artist in Residence program. Head lives and works in Tulsa, Oklahoma as a 2020-21 Tulsa Artist Fellow.
