Olivia Gallenberger is a multimedia artist who creates abstract works. She grew up
living above her family’s bakery in Oostburg, Wisconsin. She spent most of her
childhood perched upon stacks of flour bags, playing with blobs of dough and watching her father and grandfather mixing and kneading dough. It taught her the importance of working with one’s hands and the rewards in doing so. She graduated in 2018 with a BFA in ceramics and drawing from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She lived in Door County, Wisconsin for two years where she worked as an art instructor, studio assistant, and as the head baker at a local orchard farm market.
Gallenberger currently lives in Minneapolis and is an MFA candidate within the sculpture and ceramics program at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
