Artist and former gallery owner, Judi Rotenberg, is a recognized painter known for her large format, exuberant still-life’s that are anchored in studies of color composition and the emotive power of paint. Riffing off of floral arrangements composed in her studios, Rotenberg paints with bold, rhythmic brushstrokes onto large canvas, resulting in work that is distinctively hers and full of character and life. Her love for art developed at a very young age, taking after her father, an artist, and her mother, a gallery owner.
Rotenberg was born and raised in Boston, MA, and lives and works between Boston and Rockport, MA. She has a lifetime history of engagement with the artists and the communities of Cape Ann.
In 1965, she received a B.F.A from Boston University’s School of Fine Arts. Over the course of her decades-long career, she has exhibited widely at institutions and cultural venues including deCordova Museum, Lincoln, MA; Holyoke Museum, Holyoke, MA; Rockport Art Association, Rockport, MA; North Shore Art Association, Gloucester, MA; le Societarian de Beaux Arts Societé, Paris; Grand Palais de Champs Elysées, Paris; and the Four Seasons Hotel, Boston. She has studied and travelled extensively throughout France, Israel, and Mexico, and in 2012 was an official copyist at the Louvre Museum.
Rotenberg is a Lifetime Member and former President of the Board at Rockport Art Association & Museum. She is also on the board of the North Shore Art Association and the Cape Ann Museum.
