Heather M. Cline

Heather Cline is a painter and mixed media artist based in Regina, Saskatchewan. She has a deep interest in public interaction, and has participated in 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. She is fascinated by how personal history intersects with human geography. In her most recent work she is exploring what geography reveals about human occupation through a series of landscape paintings incorporating roadways and aerial views of the prairie.

Cline holds an MFA from the University of Saskatchewan and has exhibited in multiple group exhibitions, with solo exhibitions at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery (Oshawa, ON), the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon, and regional exhibition centers throughout Western Canada. Her work can be found in many public and private collections, including the Colart Collection, Remai Modern and the Saskatchewan Arts Board.

Cline has an extensive history as an art educator. 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. Currently, Cline is an instructor at the University of Regina. You can view some of Cline’s art work and community projects at: heathercline.ca
