Travis Head

Bio

Travis Head makes drawings primarily rooted in the notion of souvenir.  His works commemorate actual lived experiences and those that might be better described as virtual, in equal measure. Head has been awarded residencies at MacDowell, Yaddo, Ox-Bow, Vermont Studio Center, and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and he is a 2015 recipient of a Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship. His work has been discussed in The Washington Post and reproduced in Syracuse University’s journal Stone Canoe and Manifest’s International Drawing Annual 7.  He holds an MFA from the University of Iowa and a BA from the University of Mary Washington and is Associate Professor of Drawing at Virginia Tech’s School of Visual Art.
