WASHINGTON, CT—Works by Jack Rosenberg will be exhibited at the Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens in the center of Washington beginning Friday, May 24. The exhibit, “Dancing to the Colors of Life,” highlights Rosenberg’s boldly colored representational paintings and his ceramic work. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, May 25 from 4 to 6 p.m.

Concerto in F, 48” x 60”, oil on aluminium

Of this show, he says, “What does an image become when I want it to be a bit recognizable and a touch representational, but not realistic? These paintings are a continuing and further exploration of organic pixelation forms…dancing on the edge of expression and abstraction.” 

Rosenberg is a contemporary polymath originally from the suburban Midwest. He relocated first to Boston and then London before settling in New York City. Along with his husband of 30 years, John Michael Murphy, they made Roxbury their home. 

Rosenberg holds degrees from Michigan State University, The University of Detroit, and Tufts University. He also studied at the New York Academy of Art, the Florence Academy of Art and the Prince Charles Drawing School in London. As a studio artist, primarily painting, he often tackles political, economic and socially relevant subjects. 

Rosenberg, who is represented by Denise Bibro Fine Art in New York City and Eckert Fine Art in Washington, Conn., has paintings in the collections of the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Embassy, St. John’s Episcopal, and numerous private collections in the United States and Europe. He is an experienced art instructor having taught courses at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Florence Academy of Art in Italy.                

He is the chair of the Connecticut State Arts Council and the Connecticut State Arts Foundation, and a member of the Board of Advisors of the New York Foundation for the Arts. 

The exhibit will be on view through Sunday, June 16.
