On February 16, 2010, from 7:00-9:00 pm, Gammell will give a talk at the Mpls Photo Center, a new home for photographers in the Twin Cities.
Linda Gammell’s work has been exhibited and collected nationally. She is the recipient of a number of fellowships and artist grants, including the Bush Artist Fellowship, McKnight Fellowship, Jerome Travel Grant, and the Minnesota State Arts Board. Her personal work often involves collaborative projects that explore the relationship of land to identity, gender, food, health, and concepts of place.
She has been photographing aspects of the prairies of the Great Plains for 15 years, and recently completed a project of photographs of medicinal plants. She was a founding gallery member of WARM (Women’s Art Registry of Minnesota), and in 2006 was included in the retrospective exhibition of the collective’s contributions at the Weisman Art Museum. She has been teaching for 25 years at various institutions, including MCAD, the Colorado College, St. Olaf College, Hamline University, and the College of Visual Arts.
