Bio

Hess Hesselgrave earned an MFA from the Yale university School of Art in 1985, and a BFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1981. For more than 30 years Hesselgrave has been exhibiting throughout Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, and the greater Northeast. 

Hesselgrave has shown work at Tastistcheff Gallery, and had work included in the Annual Exhibition at the National Academy of Design in 1998, both in New York City.  In addition to studio practice Hesselgrave has been teaching drawing, painting, color theory, and 2D design, since 1986, having held adjunct positions at the State University of New York at Purchase, Fairfield University, and the University of Connecticut at Storrs.  Hesselgrave is currently on the faculty of Gateway Community College in New Haven.  Hesselgrave has been awarded residencies at the Vermont Study Center in 2014, the Millay Colony for the Arts in 2002 and 1992, and at the Seaside Institute, Seaside, Florida in 1996. The artist continues to make work which experiments, evolves, and pushes boundaries, while maintaining a disciplined adherence to craft and content.
