Getting Lost and Finding a Way with Galen Cheney

Galen Cheney is a painter living and working in North Adams, Massachusetts. After receiving her undergraduate degree from MT. Holyoke College she lived in New York City and worked as a magazine editor. Realizing she was in the wrong profession, she left New York to attend graduate school at the Maryland Institute, College of Art. Thirty-plus years and many jobs later, she is still painting.

Galen’s work has been exhibited and collected in Europe, the U.S., Canada, and China. She has had residencies at the Millay Colony, Vermont Studio Center, MASS MoCA, and DaWang Culture Highland in Shenzhen, China. A residency at Pouch Cove, in Newfoundland is upcoming in 2024. Past shows include Mark Bettis Gallery (Asheville), David Richard Gallery (NYC), University of Maine at Augusta, Fleming Museum (VT), University of Dallas, The Painting Center (NYC), and Southern Vermont Arts Center, among many others. In 2023 she will be showing work at Art Palm Beach in January with Khawam Modern and Contemporary, at Lockwood Gallery in Kingston, NY in February, at Mark Bettis Gallery in Asheville, NC in April, and at Buffalo (NY) Arts Studio in July, following a residency at 321 Residence.
