“Marsha Goldberg”: a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper through December 9th, 2022.

Marsha Goldberg focuses in her art on the marks she makes with the emphasis on gestural line to create abstraction. She is engaged with the geometry provided by the grid and her tools, balancing that exactness with the imprecision of applying paint by hand. Throughout, the artist is concerned with the relationships of color and shape and resulting emotional resonance. The works themselves are in constant conversation, as Goldberg frequently looks back to earlier work to remember and restate an idea or visual solution. Many of the exhibition works are created with the method of filling in dots with a circle template, applying it to cyanotype prints as well as her most recent acrylic paintings. Traveling has often provided her with experiences integral to her work as a visual artist. In early 2020 she was living in Marseille, France. Her latest series of acrylic paintings began as a response to the light and architecture of that city.

Goldberg was born in Boston, MA. She attended Brandeis University, Boston University and the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, later receiving an MFA from Rutgers’s Mason Gross School of the Arts. Her current studio is at her home in Highland Park, New Jersey. Goldberg’s work is in several public and private collections, including the Fogg Museum at Harvard University, the Boston Public Library and Capital One in Washington, DC, and she has been awarded artist residencies at Millay Arts and Ucross Foundation, among others. In addition to her studio practice and raising two daughters, Marsha Goldberg has taught at Kean University and Douglass College at Rutgers University.
