Gail Samuelson is a visual artist born in New York, now living in Sherborn, MA. She received a BA in Biology from Skidmore College, worked as an electron microscopist in medical research labs in Boston, earned an MBA from Simmons University, and studied photography at the Mass College of Art, the Griffin Museum of Photography, New England School of Photography, and Maine Media Workshops.
For two decades, Samuelson ran her own portrait and event photography business. She now uses the medium to reveal intersections of personal memory with saved and found objects, landscape, and self-portraiture.
Samuelson has exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography, 555 Gallery, the Cambridge Arts Association, the Danforth Museum, and the Davis Orton Gallery in Hudson, NY. Her work is in the corporate collection of Analysis Group in Boston, and the permanent collection of the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA. She has been published in the Still Point Arts Quarterly, Clare Henry Art Journal, and the Kiernan Gallery blog for winning the Juror’s Choice Award.
