Chellis Baird began her studies at the League four years ago with mixed media instructor Deborah Winiarski, who encourages art-making as “an individual and unique endeavor,” with “no fixed rules or ‘shoulds’ in the creative process.”
In 2019, Ms. Baird had a solo exhibition here in New York City at the Louise Nevelson Chapel Louise Nevelson Chapel, named after another League alumna, Louise Nevelson, known for her monumental, monochromatic wooden pieces.
Recently Ms. Baird was interviewed for White Hot Magazine by Jenna Elva. Of her show, they write “like Nevelson’s work [Ms. Baird’s] is not rooted in iconographic literalness or representation” and straddles “the line between painting and sculpture.”
