Lindsy Halleckson

Halleckson’s work has been shown in galleries across the country, including the Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, the Harwood Art Center in Albuquerque, and Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, Wisconsin. She won a 2nd place award in painting at the Wintertide Biennial in Northeast Minneapolis in 2015, received a project grant from the Puffin Foundation in 2014, and was awarded residencies as a Jerome Emerging Artist Fellow at Tofte Lake Center in 2012 and at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center in 2011. Halleckson has a Bachelor degree in Studio Art and Art History from St. Olaf College and Master of Business Administration from the University of St. Thomas. She describes her latest work: “My paintings live at the intersection of two themes: mindfulness (or quiet contemplation) and connection with nature. The paintings are meditations on the role natural silence plays in personal well-being. Over the past several years I have been re-forging my connection with nature through spending time in wild places and reflecting back on those experiences through painting.”
