rosemary Goodell : new york prints
september 3 - 28, 2017
In August of last year, Rosemary Goodell’s Baton Rouge home and studio of twenty five years experienced extensive flooding with five feet of water destroying her work and more. Displaced by the damage, she and her husband decided to temporarily relocate to New York City to be closer to their daughter and her family. During her time there, in February in March of this year, she worked independently in the print studio at the Student Arts League.
Inspired by vibrant city life and longing for nature, it was here she created her works from ink and printing plate, using stencils and found objects.
Born in California, Goodell studied at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston, U.C.L.A., and received her B.A., Phi Beta Kappa, in art and M.A. in Painting from University of California, Berkeley. In 2003 she was awarded a visual artist fellowship from the Louisiana Division of the Arts. In 1998, she received Fulbright Memorial Fund Fellowship to study and travel in Japan. She completed a painting fellowship at Skidmore College in 1996 and a residency in painting at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont in 2001.
