Amelia Toelke

Amelia Toelke’s diverse art practice draws on her training in jewelry and metalsmithing yet transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries. A combination of sculpture, collage, and installation, Toelke’s work lies at the intersection of the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional, and challenges given conceptions of object, image, reality, and representation. Toelke was selected as an artist in residence at Lanzhou City University in Lanzhou, China in 2015 and in 2016 was an artist in residence at the Brush Creek Center for the Arts in Saratoga, Wyoming. Most recently, Toelke participated in an international exhibition and art symposium in Tbilisi, Georgia. Toelke currently lives in Chatham, New York.
