Via the gallery:
“Moody Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new drawings by Andrea Rosenberg. Drawings, on view May 6 – June 17, 2023, marks her third solo exhibition at the gallery. Mostly large-scale works on paper will be on view which are comprised of acrylic, watercolor, graphite, gesso, and crayon on paper.
‘What struck me first, upon seeing Andrea Rosenberg’s drawings a few years ago, was their expansive, graceful form, the result of an unstudied confidence, and their subject matter, the vitality of life itself. Without any preconceptions or preparatory studies, the drawings emerge spontaneously, spawned only by her past experience and the longevity of her practice. Energy, she told me, is the source and meaning of her drawn forms.’ -Frances Colpitt, Professor Emerita, Art History at Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, Texas, from the essay ‘The Living Line.’
Andrea Rosenberg was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1948 and currently lives and works in both Dallas, Texas and Fishtail, Montana.
