Candace Hunter (she/her) is a Chicago based artist. She creates collages, paintings, installations, and performance art. Plainly, she tells stories. Through the use of appropriated materials from magazines, vintage maps, cloth, and various re-used materials, she offers this new landscape of materials back to the viewer with a glimpse of history and admiration of the beautiful. 

During the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, she began to do two things, offer free art classes on Instagram and to create what she now calls her “Brown Limbed Girls” – a growing series of whimsical brown girls enjoying their lives. She is extremely happy to share the girls with a new audiences in New Orleans and Northern California.

Candace has most recently received 3Arts Next Level/Spare Room Award, the Tim and Helen Meier Family Foundation Award, the 2016 3 Arts Award, and honored by the Diasporal Rhythms Collective. In 2020, she served as a juror for the Kentucky Foundation for Women and was asked to speak at the Midwest Women in Ecology Conference.
