Beth Galston is known for creating immersive environments, sculptures, prints, and public art commissions that combine nature, technology and light. Her installations define space through the layering of materials—both ephemeral and physical. By collecting, reproducing, and re-presenting organic elements in her sculptures and her prints she creates forms which echo and amplify the cycles of the natural world.
Galston earned the SMVisS degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she was a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS) for five years. She studied with sculptor Dale Eldred, earning the BFA at the Kansas City Art Institute, and BA from Cornell University. Galston has exhibited and created public art commissions throughout the United States. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including a 2013 Massachusetts Artists Fellowship in Sculpture/Installation, a two-year Bunting Institute Fellowship at Radcliffe, a National Endowment for the Arts InterArts award, a MacDowell Fellowship, a Yaddo Residency, and a funded Residency at Sculpture Space, Inc.
