'Inquirer' Reviews Roberta Eisenberg Retrospective
Work by the late alumna described as a 'painterly dialogue with the canvas'
October 24, 2011
A retrospective exhibition by late alumna Roberta Eisenberg BFA ’78 (Painting), running in Hamilton and Arronson Galleries through November 2, was featured in The Philadelphia Inquirer, which described her work as a "painterly dialogue with the canvas by showing lots of movement, veils of color, and color changes from deepest depths to lyrical and high key."
An all-star jazz performance was held in the Philadelphia native's honor on October 9 in conjunction with the exhibit.
Described as a spiritual expressionist refusing to follow trends, Eisenberg created a profound world of beauty, full of the power of nature and the vastness of the human spirit. Her modernist aesthetic is rich with visual metaphor and deep psychological understandings. Retrospectives of her work have appeared at the W. Keith and Janet Kellogg University Gallery and the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. She was represented by Space Gallery in Los Angeles.
