Carol Brown Goldberg

September 20 - December 10, 2011

The Carol Brown Goldberg Painting and Sculpture exhibition opens to the public on September 20 and will run through December 10, 2011. Complementing it is a full color exhibition catalog, a symposium entitled Carol Brown Goldberg, and educational programs for children and adults.

Exhibition curator art critic Dr. Donald Kuspit says of Goldberg’s works “Her sculptures are critically daring, and her paintings convey her free spirit. She surrealizes meaningful objects into aesthetic meaningfulness – exposes the aesthetics inherent in them – and liberates gesture from descriptive constraints in her paintings, as Gorky, Matta, and Hoffman never completely did in theirs. They couldn’t separate the personal from the transpersonal, as Goldberg is able to do, deftly.”

Her works continue to challenge leading art critics and art historians. Quoting Barbara Rose who wrote, “The circles, which seem to shift as we observe them, constitute only one of the complex series of intertwined illusions that the artist, now certain of what she has to say and equipped with the wisdom of experience, is able to realize. The degree of sophistication required to master such a task informs us that it is the result of building on what has gone before, transforming the unguided energy of youth into the discipline of an ordered sense of space and a more conscious awareness of time.”
