Exhibition of Recent Works Opens Sept. 18
MELBOURNE, FLA. — An exhibition of the recent works of Carol Brown Goldberg will open Sept. 18 at Florida Institute of Technology’s Foosaner Museum of Art in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne. Carol Brown Goldberg: Recent Sculpture will be on display at the museum through Jan. 4, 2015.
Goldberg will give a Gallery Talk at 10:30 a.m. Sept. 18 at the museum. She will be speaking about her sculptures in the current exhibition. The lecture is free.
A Baltimore, Md., native, Goldberg once taught at American University. She graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a B.A. in American Studies. She then earned her B.F.A. at the Corcoran School of Art under Gene Davis, where she was recognized with the Eugene M. Weisz award upon graduation.
As an artist, Goldberg’s work is informed by her curiosity with physics and the cosmos. In her sculptures, she stops time and readjusts our perception of the world. Assemblages of found objects, the works highlight both her meditative process and her examination of scale. Once completed, the ordinary becomes poignant and preposterous at the same time.
A former Artist in Residence at the Chautauqua Institute in New York and the recipient of the Maryland State Arts Award in 2010, Goldberg has her works in the permanent collections of the New Orleans Museum of Art and National Museum of Women in the Arts and outdoor sculpture installations at The Kreeger Museum, the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center, and George Washington University.
A traveling exhibition, it was curated by Jack Rasmussen, director and curator of the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center. Carol Brown Goldberg: Recent Sculpture was organized by International Arts & Artists, Washington, D.C.
