February 23 – March 30, 2019
Reception for the Artist Saturday, February 23, 5-7 pm
Moody Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new drawings by Andrea Rosenberg. Drawings will mark her second one-person exhibition at the gallery which will feature mostly large-scale works. Her work is comprised mainly of acrylic, watercolor, graphite, gesso, and crayon on paper, however the largest work in the exhibition will be a painting using the same materials on linen.
“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, the Deedie Rose Chair of Art History at Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, Texas, from the essay The Living Line, included in the exhibition catalogue Andrea Rosenberg: New Paintings and Drawings published by Barry Whistler Gallery in 2018.
Andrea Rosenberg was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1948 and currently lives and works in both Dallas, Texas and Fishtail, Montana.
