Heather M. Cline

Heather Cline lives and works in Regina, Saskatchewan. Growing up in the Saskatoon community of Sutherland, she witnessed a small town being consumed by a city. This limbo between prairie past and prairie present continues to inform her multi-media practice. Since completing her MFA at the University of Saskatchewan in 2001, Cline has worked in painting and mixed media, exploring narratives around place and personal history. Over the past 10 years she has been involved in a series of residency programs and public engagement across Canada. Her activities have included setting up a ‘Story Collection’ office from an inner city store-front in Oshawa, Ontario and riding along on combines in rural Manitoba. Cline is fascinated by how personal history intersects with human geography; currently this involves merging collage soundscapes with lush intricate paintings of everyday places. She has participated in multiple group exhibitions, with solo exhibitions at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery (Oshawa, ON), the Mendel Art Gallery (Saskatoon), and regional exhibition centers throughout Saskatchewan. She has also conducted workshops and lectures on a variety of topics throughout North America. Cline’s work can be found in many public and private collections, including the Colart Collection, the Mendel Art Gallery and the Saskatchewan Legislature Building.

Cline has a keen interest in community engagement and art education. In 2006 she was the writer, host and co-producer of a regional Saskatchewan television series, ‘Art from the Start.’ She also wrote and hosted the television series 'Art Inclined', examining artists and history, which aired on SCN and Treasure HD in 2007 and 2008. In 2014 Cline received the Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor’s Arts Award: Arts & Learning for her work as the Artist Manager of an innovative distance learning ‘Artist in the School’ program, a partnership with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Learning, the Saskatchewan Arts Board and multiple Saskatchewan School Divisions. She has also taken part in a series of community-based art projects and exhibitions, including a residency at the Saskatchewan Legislature Building as part of the 100th Anniversary celebrations in 2012. Currently, Cline is an instructor at the University of Regina.
