Emily Teall (BFA '16, MA '18) is a Connecticut-based multimedia artist with particular interests in sculpture and installation art. Teall's artistic career began with an early-childhood interest in and curiosity about nature. Her curiosity developed into close observations made through the drawing process. Organic elements continue to be a driving force in her work. Teall's current work also draws from experiences with social anxiety and from the role of the body in (particularly a female) identity.
Teall has exhibited in a number of group shows in and near her hometown of Riverside, CT; at Cornell University, where she completed her BFA; at Columbia University; in NYC, NY; and in Hudson, NY. Teall has created group artworks with Marta Kot (USA), Pierre Portelli (Malta), Angiola Churchill, (USA/Italy), Suzanna Tanger (USA), Zbylut Grzywacz (Poland), and Anton Kot (USA). Teall has worked particularly closely with installation artist Angiola Churchill and with painter, Christina Burch.
Teall taught in a number of courses for all age groups at Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan, CT and at the Tsogyelgar Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Teall also teaches art to vulnerable students, currently at Fusion Academy and formerly at Trailblazers Academy, Rauschenbusch Metro Ministries, and the South Norwalk Community Center.
