Rochester, NY based artist, Emily Bellinger, creates abstract narratives through contemporary quilting techniques and print media. Utilizing a variety of hand printed fabric and found fabric materials, she uses muted colors and repetitive linear marks as a method of abstract storytelling.
Her piece “Fractured Memories” was recently showcased in the Art in Craft Media 2017 exhibition at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, and was selected for the Sylvia L. Rosen Acquisition Award. She has also exhibited her work in many additional regional exhibitions including the Memorial Art Gallery’s 30 Under 30 show, and a recent solo exhibition of quilts at the Rochester Brainery.
Bellinger received her BFA from Alfred University in 2011, and her MFA from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2016. She is currently an adjunct professor at RIT, teaching a variety of Fine Art drawing courses as well as a lecture course on the art of self-promotion. Bellinger also works as a commissioned quilter. Her quilts warm the homes of many private residences throughout the United States.
