Biography and Resume

 

William H. Thielen Biography

I was born March 18, 1954 in Pierre, South Dakota, where I grew up.I did my undergraduate studies in painting at Northern State University, Aberdeen, South Dakota from which I received a B.S. in Art Education Comprehensive (Painting with minors in Fibers and Sculpture) in 1977.At that time I realized that in making my art I wanted a broader base from which to draw.Therefore, I enrolled in graduate school under M. Joan Lintault at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.I received my M.F.A. in fibers in 1980.

Just after completion of my terminal degree, I was invited to be a multimedia panelist for Fibre-Form-Fusion, an international conference held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.Shortly thereafter, in 1982, I received a visual artist fellowship grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

I have artwork in the permanent collection of the South Dakota Art Museum, Brookings, South Dakota.I have received purchase awards from the Evansville (Indiana) Museum of Art and Science in 1993 and the Mitchell Museum, Mt. Vernon, Illinois, in 2002; and merit awards from the 31st Annual Quincy Show, Elizabeth Sinnock Gallery, Quincy, Illinois in 1981; the Alexandria Fine Arts Annual, Visual Art Center, Alexandria, Louisiana in 1982; the Self-Images show at the Associated Artist Gallery, Carbondale, Illinois in 1989; and the Evansville (Indiana) Museum of Art and Science in 2000.

In 1984 I was one of ten artists chosen to participate in the Interchange Program at the Banff Center for the Arts, Banff, Alberta, Canada.This international collection of emerging artists spent the summer studying with artists from the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

In 1984-85, Sandra McMorris Johnson and I took top honors in the NEA-funded Fiberworks Exhibition and Projects Competition in Berkeley, California.We were commissioned to mount a collaborative installation in their main gallery.

In 1990, I was one of five artists chosen in the "Big Art" competition of the Arts Festival of Atlanta.My work was reproduced on a 12 by 48 foot billboard in the heart of downtown Atlanta for a period of over six months.

In 1992 and 1997, I was awarded an Expansion Arts Grant by Southern Illinois Arts Council in conjunction with the Expansion Arts/Access program of the Illinois Arts Council.

I have conducted visiting artist lectures/critiques at Southeast Missouri State University, Cape Girardeau, 2009; Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, 2009; Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield, 2001; Western Illinois University, Macomb, 1998; Lockport Gallery, Lockport, Illinois, 1996; Eastern Kentucky University, Richmond, 1994; Vincennes University, Vincennes, Indiana, 1991; Truman University, Kirksville, Missouri, 1989; Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington, 1988.From 1990 to 2000, I was on the Board of Advisors for the Gallery of Contemporary Art in New Harmony, Indiana.

In 1995-96, I had a traveling show curated and sponsored by the State of Illinois Museum and Galleries at Ina, Lockport, and Chicago.

I was a guest critic for the "Fall Arts Preview" in the Nuvo Newsweekly of Indianapolis in its September 14-21, 1994 issue.

Reviews of my work have been published in the New Art Examiner (Sep., 1990), Art Week (June 1, 1985), the Los Angeles Times (June 4, 1981), Fiberarts magazine (July/Aug., 1985 & Sep./Oct., 1981), and numerous regional newspapers.My work has appeared in Soft Sculpture by Carolyn Vosburg Hall (1981, Davis Publications, Worcester, MA).

In 2002, I was invited to be included in a show at Gary Snyder Fine Art in New York, titled “Five Hundred Abstract Works on Paper, 1922-2002.”I was the only contemporary artist in the show mentioned in a review by N.F. Karlins in artnet magazine: http://www.artnet.com/magazine/reviews/karlins/karlins8-7-02.asp.

I am currently a full-time studio artist, living and working in Carbondale, Illinois.
