Sofya Belinskaya is a Ukranian-American visual artist. Her paintings and drawings are narratively driven works on paper that seek the line between dreams and memory. Born in Donestk, Ukraine, her practice is inspired by the architecture, movement, the passage of time, and memory through the lens of the immigrant experience. She creates images that are unbound and compelled by emotive narratives.
Sofya Belinskaya received her BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Tufts University, Boston. She was a founding-member and organizer with Lion's Main Art Collective, a non-profit centering queer and trans artists. She co-curated exhibitions with Lion's Main Art Collective, including shows at King Street Station, Henry Art Gallery, and Seattle Art Museum's Art in the Park series. Sofya teaches painting and drawing at Pratt Fine Arts Center. Her work has been exhibited and published nationally, including exhibitions at Linda Hodges Gallery, Seattle, WA, and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA. She lives and works in Seattle, WA with her cats.

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs

Gage Academy of Art is committed to social justice in a diverse democracy
