Meacham, SK, CA

Over the years, Louisa Ferguson’s relationship with Art has been varied. She has studied music, dance, theatre, and many forms of visual art, including a 12-year practice as a contemporary glass artist, as well as the completion of an MFA in Studio Art at the University of Saskatchewan.

Louisa’s MFA thesis centred around artistic practice as an embodiment emerging out of a collaborative relationship with the rolling landscape of the pothole region of the prairies where she lives.

As a glass artist, Louisa was awarded The Gale Steck Memorial Award for Excellence in Craft by an Emerging Artist for Dimensions 2015. She was a finalist in the 2017 Niche Awards and in the prestigious International Toyama Glass Exhibition 2018. In 2018, she was awarded the Shurniack Fund for Emerging Artists.
