This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Hazel Belvo (1934-) Ohio, New York, Massachusetts, Minnesota

The painter, Hazel Belvo was born in southern Ohio and grew up on a farm. The horse provided the power to operate the machinery on the family farm.  Her grandfather was the farmer, who also played the fiddle.  Grandmother quilted, gardened and loved to sing.  Belvo’s childhood influences planted seeds and things grew.  Her mother was the head of the household.  Mother was a butcher and owned her own meatpacking business.  At an early age Belvo learned to cut meat.  This started her education in anatomy, bones, muscle and physical structure.
 
At a very young age she discovered the magic of the mark.  She continued to draw at every opportunity.  There was a Saturday School at the Dayton Art Institute and at eleven she was awarded a scholarship.  This one event changed her life proving the power of the image.  She had the opportunity to view paintings.  She became a painter.  The brush started her on the life long journey of painting.
 
Belvo’s first museum exhibition was in 1960.  This exhibition inspired her to move to New York City.  In New York City her life took another dynamic change.  She lived in a loft on the lower east side.  The daily conversations were with other New York artists like John Chamberlain, Franz Kline and Louis Nevelson.  Her studies were at the New School for Social research.  The real art education came from the art world of artists, galleries, museums and people of New York.  This time was filled with excitement, understanding and creativity.  Belvo’s artwork developed in this fresh new environment and her consciousness expanded.

Her studies continued from 1963 to 1967 at Radcliffe-Harvard in Cambridge with the Bunting Institute Fellowship.  This is when she started to teach.  This experience convinced her “aesthetic education is critical to democracy”.  The instruction to her students includes the ideology that “it is a radical act to make a work of art and put it out there for the world to see!”  She enjoys her students and continues to teach today.  The ethical philosophy that to teach art one must also make art has provided her with not only creative energy for her work, but the opportunity to have excellent students teaching and exhibiting around the world.

The artist has many collaborative and community projects to her credit.  These include: Strong Bones written by Joanne Hart illustrations by Hazel Belvo, 2002; Witch Tree  written by Joanne Hart illustrations by Hazel Belvo, Holy Cow Press, 1991; Axe of Creation, written by Helen Duberstein, directed by Lisa Mayo, drawings and performance by Hazel Belvo, West Beth Theater, NYC, NY, 1980; George Morrison, 1978 film narrated by Hazel Belvo; Le Universities San Murs Aux U.S.A., “Reseau” (magazine for Open University/College without Walls) University of Quebec, Canada, 1974; and Three Women Artists: Belvo, Corrado and Helfant, filmed directed by William Gerrald, Radcliffe College, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1966.

Belvo’s creative energy extends internationally to lectures, workshops, readings, book signings, panel discussions, television shows, and radio shows, which span from 1972 to 2002.  She has juried and evaluated art exhibitions nationally.  Internationally she has attended conferences, symposiums and traveled professionally to France, England, Wales, Scotland, Canada, Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Germany, and Spain.  These travels included painting and research upon every occasion at museums and galleries.  From 1994-1997 she painted in Monet’s gardens at Giverny in France.  In 1988 the Lily Foundation, Faculty Development Grant allowed Belvo to traveled to Oslo, Paris, Amsterdam, Madrid, London, and England.  Belvo traveled in 1999 to Paris, France, Giverny, Czech Republic for four months for professional development.

For forty years Belvo has painted one tree annually.  This tree called the Witch Tree from 1987-1990 was an important project for the artist.  A group of interested people purchased the tree and surrounding land and gave it to the Chippewa Reservation, Grand Portage, Minnesota.

Belvo is a founding member of Woman’s Art Registry of Minnesota “WARM”.  This gallery provided a vibrant home for the artist to articulate her feminist or female art renaissance.  Reminding the art world that during this era woman contributed 40 percent of the creative energy for the expressionist and abstract art movement.  She was the editor for the WARM’s gallery catalogues and continued as the sisterhood’s WARM historian.  The archives for this art organization are now preserved and provide an excellent road map for a creative art group. WARM opportunities provided all members were a clear focus for their creative energy, mutual support, serious reviews and required volunteerism from all in the group.  The gallery provided each artist with the opportunity not only to celebrate and succeed, but the opportunity to try and fail growing artistically by their artistic experience.  The photographic archives of this female/feminist art group expose the joy, truth and spirit of the groups’ artistic connectivity.

She maintains two studios one on Lake Superior and one in the city; she shares both with her partner, artist, Marcia Cushmore.  There is a third studio, which she carries in her backpack while traveling.  Regardless, of the studio she chooses everyday you will find her creating and working in the arts.

Today she is an Emeritus mentoring Graduate Students at MCAD.  She also teaches at Grand Marais Art Colony.  American artists work with her and she has the opportunity to watch their artwork develop.  Her undeniable passion is painting.


Painting takes what is internal and external, adding thought and need to bring a picture into existence to share with the world.
