Barbara Zeigler is an artist and associate professor, Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory, and supervisor of the UBC Printmedia Research Centre she founded in 2002. With a main focus in printmedia, she has also worked extensively in drawing, installation and collaborative public art, and combined these media with her work in print.  Hidden Sites, her most recent solo exhibition (Richmond Art Gallery, BC, summer 2009), incorporated a large display of digital prints with a video installation. Confronting issues of ecological degradation in British Columbia marine habitats, this work built on her interest of almost four decades in the evolving relationship between human culture and the ecosphere.

Zeigler's artworks have been widely exhibited internationally and also featured in publications such as the British Journal for Canadian Studies (22.1, 2009, article by Christopher Rolfe); Printmaking at the Edge, Richard Noyce (2006); Print Voice: Precarious Balance, Walter Jule, ed. (1990); and included in The Best of Printmaking: An International Collection, Lynn Allen and Phyllis McGibbon (1997). Since 2001, she has received four UBC/HSS Grants.

Barbara received her BFA and MFA from the University of Illinois; studied in Munich, Germany at the Akademie der bildenden Künste and the Universität München. She has also taught at the University of Alberta, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Queen's University (Kingston, ON), and at the University of Illinois (C-U) in the USA.
