Carly Slade grew up in "Big sky Alberta", Canada. She received her MFA from San Jose State University and her BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design. Her work is influenced by her blue-collar roots and plagued by a concern for the precarious nature of the working class. Using a mix of materials (most often including clay, embroidery, and building supplies), Slade creates dioramas of real places in an unreal perspective. Carly has had numerous solo exhibitions, including one at Greenwich House in New York City. She was the Resident Artist at Tyler School of Art, and Visiting Assistant Professor at Arizone State University, Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, IL. She is currently Assistant Professor at Wyoming and has another major solo show coming up in St. Louis at the The Sheldon.
