Kathleen Ferguson-Huntington is a multi-faceted, multi-media artist living in Taos, New Mexico. She has a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and a Master of Arts in Digital Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She first came to Taos on a Wurlitzer Grant.
In 2000, she was hired to teach art and design at Virginia Commonwealth University Qatar. She worked for twelve years in Doha and traveled extensively in Europe and Asia, notably trade routes along the Silk Road. In 2012 Kathleen returned to New Mexico and started a memoir called Living With the Giga Rich: A Qatar Memoir about her time in the Middle East and her experiences teaching; how she empowered her students –often wealthy Arabian royals –by inspiring them to see, and think, in unaccustomed ways. She felt that thinking creatively was arguably the most important skill to acquire and the hardest to impart.
Herself an accomplished multi-media artist, a vast array of her powerfully original work has been included in many exhibitions nationally and internationally including the Whitney Biennial of Contemporary American Art. She has received grants and awards from Ford Motor Company and HSBC Bank International.
She has been an artist in residency at The Harwood Foundation of the University of New Mexico, Sanskriti Foundation, Delhi, India, Bait Al Baranda Museum, Muscat, Oman, and Tyrone Guthrie Centre in the Republic of Ireland.
Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Arizona Republic, Art in America, New Art Examiner, and Art News to name some.
