Collection: Thea Reid
Thea Reid is a Canadian artist whose work spans printmaking, drawing and sculpture. She received a BFA from NSCAD University in Halifax (2013), NS and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI (2016). Reid is an artist, curator and educator who taught printmaking and drawing at Saginaw Valley State University, Oakland Community College, and Detroit Community College. In 2019 she co-founded the White Brick Gallery in Ferndale, Michigan with Jessica Hayworth, a one-year curatorial project featuring emerging and early-career artists.

Her work is a meditation on perception and sensory experience, on moments where the transcendent and the everyday environment merge.
