Chelsea Revelle is a Boston-based fine artist exploring assemblage, mixed media, printmaking, and fiber art. Her work examines vestiges of the home and subdued madness in relation to "the historical entrapment of women by domesticity". Chelsea received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2007 and later achieved her Masters in Nonprofit Leadership from Wheelock College in 2014. The fine art that Chelsea creates has been featured in museums and galleries such as Fuller Craft Museum, Bromfield Gallery, Lincoln Arts Project, Nichols House Museum and the Washington Street Art Center. Magazines such as Creative Quarterly, Create! and Fresh Paint have featured her work and generous reviews have appeared in ArtScope Magazine and Boston Hassle. Several of Chelsea's assemblage pieces were released in a special edition book called “Always Home” published by Fresh Paint.
Life in the city inspired Chelsea to invest her time in community arts-based education and works to advance access and opportunities for emerging and under-represented artists. Chelsea is currently the Manager of Studio Art Classes at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and a core member of Fountain Street Gallery in Boston’s SOWA district.
In her spare time you can find Chelsea assembling objects in her Jamaica Plain studio, riding her bike, thrifting for treasures and spoiling her pet ferret Charlie.
