William and Anna Jane Schlossman Gallery
Over her almost 70 year-long career, Hazel Belvo has been a prominent contributor to both the arts and feminist advocacy in the region. Hazel co-founded the Women’s Art Registry of Minnesota (WARM), was Chair of the Fine Arts Dept. at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), and taught at the Grand Marais Artist Colony. Born in Ohio, and she studied at the Dayton Art Institute, Hazel started her artistic explorations with the painting of individual cellular structures. Over time her imagery would develop to include expansive landscapes, powerful trees, and portraits that expressed love, determination, and strength. This exhibition features works from throughout her career, including recently produced paintings and a selection of Hazel’s travel journals.
