Cheselyn Amato

San Rafael, CA

Cheselyn Amato is an interdisciplinary visual artist, global citizen and lightworker for justice and social transformation. She works across the disciplines – 2D, 3D and 4D – with an emphasis on enacting circumstances for the experience of sublimity, awe, wonder and delight in the midst of uncertainty and suffering in the world via the orchestration of visual props and cues, colored light phenomena, video projection, vocalization/sounding, and choreographies of gesture and movement. The work is made as instigator of experience, of presence, of all that is revealed when we pay close attention: look and see, listen and hear. Cheselyn’s work reflects and chronicles her lifelong spiritual, aesthetic and humanitarian journey. She has been teaching art students for decades and has recently added spiritual care and bereavement counseling to her toolkit as light worker and doula for personal, social, societal and global transformation and for the triumph of justice, love, beauty and abundance.

Cheselyn is a New Jersey girl with NYC at her core. She spent 20 years in Chicago where she taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for two decades before moving to Northern California where she lived in Davis for fifteen years until recently moving to San Rafael. Cheselyn has taught at American River and Sierra Community Colleges. She earned her BA in studio art and comparative religious studies at Brown University, an MFA in drawing, painting and new genres at Tyler School of Art of Temple University, and an MTS at GTU/PSR in Berkeley in Interfaith Chaplaincy and Justice & Social Transformation. Cheselyn is currently serving as Hospice Spiritual Support Counselor. Her work is exhibited nationally and has been included in exhibitions at the Jewish Museum in NYC, the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, and Spertus Institute of Judaica in Chicago with works in the permanent collections.
