Gabrielle Sichel

Gabrielle Sichel grew up in rural Connecticut. Her mother is an artist and her father was a writer. Sichel spent time in New York City listening to jazz. In her paintings and collages she often uses words and intense colors combined in jazz-like rhythms. She graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 1986 and Tufts University in 1989. She has participated in postgraduate courses at Massachusetts College of Art and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Sichel came to Gateway Arts in 1997. She has received scholarships to the Medicine Wheel Artist’s Retreat in 1993, 1997, and 1999. Sichel’s work has been exhibited at the Gateway Gallery, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Radcliffe College and a number of galleries. She has written and illustrated a book of poetry called “Sees and Hears” and her poems have been published in “For Crying Out Loud.” Cambridge Hospital owns a collage from her series, “A Life Coming Into the World.” Sichel’s work has been reviewed by the Boston Herald and she has been interviewed by The Boston Globe. Recently, Sichel spent a month at the Vermont Studio Center working along with fifty other artists/writers from around the world.
