Aimee Howard studied metalsmithing at Ball State University receiving her BFA in 2006. After earning her MFA in 2009 from the University of Kansas, she was very fortunate to have the opportunity to teach metals at the University of Louisiana – Lafayette. Aimee now calls Edwardsville, IL home, spending time on personal artistic pursuits and heading the Metalwork program at Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville.
Aimee’s artwork focuses on complex issues relating to advancements in Western medicine. Particularly, the dilemmas produced by the marvels of medical technology juxtaposed with the often intrusive procedures used to sustain and prolong life. Her pieces raise challenging questions about hope, science, and cures. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally at venues including the Brunswick Street Gallery in Fitzroy, Australia, the Gil-gum Research Center in Seoul, Korea, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum in Tokyo, Japan, the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center in Covington, Kentucky, Kawliga Studios in New Orleans, LA, and First Street Gallery in New York, NY.
