Lindsey Guile

Lindsey Guile is a body-neutral and fat-liberationist 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 The Arnot Museum, The Dorsky Museum, Untitled Space Gallery, The Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, Women’s Work Gallery, The Birke Art Gallery, among others. Most recently she had a solo exhibition, UNRULY BODIES, at the Mary Cosgrove Dolphin Art Gallery at Worcester State University in Massachusetts. She also has two more solo-exhibitions in the work for 2023 and 2024.

Lindsey is an Associate Professor of Visual Art at Dutchess Community College where she teaches Drawing, Figure Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Color Theory, and Ceramics.  She is also the Director of the Mildred I. Washington Art Gallery.  Lindsey graduated from SUNY New Paltz with her MFA painting and drawing in 2014 and has a BFA and MA from SUNY Oswego. She currently resides in Poughkeepsie, NY.
