Hazel Belvo has been an influential artist, art educator, and feminist leader for more than fifty years. Her prodigious output ranges from delicate drawings to monumental paintings exploring nature, spirituality, and the feminine psyche. She is best known for over four hundred works on the legendary Spirit Little Cedar Tree on the North Shore of Lake Superior whose ancient, twisted form embodies the endurance and majesty of nature. In this talk Julie L’Enfant, author of the new book Hazel Belvo: A Matriarch of Art, will introduce Belvo’s eventful life and the many friendships and associations in the art world that fostered the evolution of her unique expressionist vision.
Julie L’Enfant, former professor of art history at the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, is the author of seven books, including The Gag Family: German-Bohemian Arts in America (2002), Pioneer Modernists: Minnesota’s First Generation of Women Artists (2011), both winners of Minnesota Book Awards, and Nicholas R. Brewer: His Art and Family (2018).
