Lindsey Guile

Lindsey Guile is a body and fat-positive artist exploring concepts of self-image through the lens of contemporary feminist theory.  Lindsey’s practice embraces an intermedia approach that utilizes drawing, printmaking, and ceramics in her explorations into how body image affects self-worth. Her work has been exhibited at Untitled Space Gallery in Tribeca, The Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, Women’s Work Gallery,  and The Dorsky Museum of Art, among others. 

Lindsey is a Tenured Assistant Professor of Visual Art at Dutchess Community College where she teaches Drawing, Figure Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, and Color Theory.  She is also the Director of the Mildred I.
