Stacey Rathert

Adjunct Instructor
Sculpture, Foundations

MFA, University of Mississippi
BFA, Fort Hays State University


Stacey Rathert is an artist originally from the way outs of Kansas, also known as the small farming community of Lancaster. Rathert received her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Science in Education in 2011 from Fort Hays State University, Hays, Kansas. She then made an epic voyage to the south to receive her Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Mississippi, Oxford, in 2015. Currently Rathert is an instructor at the U of M in the sculpture and foundations department.

Working in a variety of scale and material, she creates whimsical objects that are embellishments on the truth, relating to personal narrative and experiences of growing up on the farm. Rathert’s artwork is also deeply rooted in process and material, pushing the limits and establishing new boundaries, especially in steel and cast iron.

Outside of her academic and artistic endeavors Rathert enjoys a good, medium rare KC Strip with a side of carbs, adding to her collection of over 75 antique and toy sad irons, cooking but not doing the dishes, walks with her cattle dog Mabel, escapes to the farm to drive tractors, and moving heavy stuff, over and over again.

Rathert’s artwork has been shown in regional, national, and international shows, in both gallery and outdoor settings. She also has a piece in the private collection of the Talsi Regional Museum in Talsi, Latvia. Rathert has had the pleasure of working with and drawing inspiration from artists such as Tobias Flores, Durant Thompson, Matthew Barney, and Noah and Alison Kirby.
