Rosalyn Engelman: Beauty is Everywhere

December 21, 2017–April 8, 2018

Rosalyn Engelman (American, born 1938) is a painter, sculptor, and installation artist. She works with a variety of materials and produces art with a striking range of expressive content. In all of her work, Engelman is searching for beauty, hope, and transcendence.

The present exhibition features five works from Engelman’s 2003–04 “Echo Sonata” series, which she created following numerous trips to Japan with her husband between 1975 and 1999. This series was inspired by the art of 17th-century Japanese calligrapher renowned for his fluid and graceful style, Hon’ami Kōetsu (1558–1637).

Engelman is a University of Rochester alumna, and currently lives and works in New York, NY.
