Rhoda Rosenberg Exhibition eCatalog


This exhibition celebrates Rosenberg’s career as painter, master printmaker, established artist, and beloved professor. It will be on view through December 17. Rosenberg’s work focuses on deeply rooted ties with family members and the power of an object’s shape to convey feeling. Concerned with emotion and meaning behind her subject matter more than representational rendering, she has concentrated on transcendent shapes throughout her career, seeing beyond the form of an object and getting to the feeling it evokes instead.

Rosenberg has served as a faculty member at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts since 1982. She won SMFA’s Russel T. Smith Award for outstanding teaching in 2003 and earned a Faculty Enrichment Grant for her work teaching at Artist Proof Studio in Johannesburg, South Africa. Rosenberg has also taught at Boston University, Danforth Museum School of Art, and Montserrat College of Art. Additionally, Rosenberg runs the Merrimac Printmaking Studio. Rosenberg’s work has been featured in group and solo exhibitions around the globe, from Alaska to South Africa to Poland. Selections of her work are housed in various collections across the country, from Massachusetts to Colorado. The winner of numerous awards and accolades, Rosenberg notably received the Atlantic Papers Materials Award at Boston Printmakers North American Print Biennial in 2007. Her retrospective coincides with Boston Printmakers North American Print Biennial 2023 + 75th Anniversary at Boston University’s 808 Gallery from October 10 through December 9.

This exhibition is part of The Boston Printmakers 2023 Biennial + 75th Anniversary. Join us in celebrating with the the print community with a full season of exhibitions, talks and events.
