about Cheryle

Cheryle St. Onge grew up on college campuses as the only child of a Physics professor and a painter. She received her M.F.A. from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and has been on the faculty at Phillips Exeter Academy, Clark University, Maine College of Art, and Univ of New Hampshire. She created and taught the University of New Hampshire’s Art and Art History Department’s first online curriculum beginning in 2011.

Cheryle’s work focuses on the crossover of art and science and photography’s ability to distill our sense of time and curiosity. She makes pictures predominantly with an 8 x 10 view camera and considers her work a collaborative process. Her photographs have been widely exhibited, most notably at London’s National Portrait Gallery, Griffin Museum, Princeton University, University of Rhode Island, Massachusetts College of Art, Rick Wester Fine Arts, and with the American Institute of Architects traveling exhibition. She is the recipient of a Polaroid Artist Support Grant, The John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, Critical Mass Exhibition Award, New Hampshire Charitable Arts Grant.
