Amelia Galgon is an artist from Glenside, PA now living and working in Brooklyn, NY. She received her B.A in Art from Lehigh University in 2017 along with a B.S. in Computer Science from the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science. In 2016, she won third place in Riverside Festival of the Arts’ Plein Air content in Easton, PA. Her work is highly figurative and typically depicts herself and people she’s close to -- friends, relatives, and fellow artists. During her education, she developed a style of using gesture and an unrestrained palette to illustrate the presence of her subjects and showcased her later portraits of her classmates at her Senior Thesis Solo Exhibition in 2017. She has since exhibited her work in artist showcases in Philadelphia and New York City and continues to explore themes of identity and relationships.
