Chalasa Dance Company
Reuben Bechtold co-founded Chalasa dance company with choreographer Jahain Clark. Based in Stamford, CT, the company combined choreography, light, sound and sculpture to create innovative works from 1994-2006. Bechtold designed and fabricated all of the sculptural elements featured in Chalasa's work.
Drawings: Plein Air, Cities,
Since he first discovered brush, pen, paper and pigment, Reuben Bechtold has created his own work. He holds a BA in Painting and Sculpture from SUNY Purchase.
An Ongoing, Experimental Art Series
Since 2013, Bechtold has curated a weekly art series that features art made by no one, or by nature, or otherwise by divine accident. This series challenges the viewer to consider why life compells us to make art, and why art can make us see life, and the objects in our lives, differently.
