JOSHUA HUYSER | Shivelight

March 3 - April 14, 2017 

Opening Reception: Friday, March 3, 6-9pm


In the Waiting Room, Minnesota-based artist Joshua Huyser presents Shivelight, a selection of watercolors depicting singular household objects, such as a drinking glass, a set of measuring cups, or a child’s play toy. Huyser’s astute contemplation of these items, centrally composed and rendered in dreamily matter-of-fact brushstrokes, bestows on them a distinct reverence and ethereality that is all too often overlooked in our everyday experience.

Joshua Huyser was born and raised in Montana.  He received his M.F.A. at the University of Iowa School of Art and Art History in Iowa City, Iowa in 2001. He has taught at the University of Northern Iowa and Montana State University. In 2002 he was a guest professor and lecturer at the Herzen Institute in St. Petersburg, Russia working with both American and Russian art students.  After moving to Minneapolis in 2005 he began working in the commercial film industry while continuing to exhibit nationally.  A 2016 McKnight Fellowship finalist, Huyser actively exhibits, most recently in Milan, London, and Marseille and has work in both public and private collections nationally and internationally.
