See Carolyn A Rosenberger at Waupaca Community Art Center’s Featured Artist Exhibit through October 16, 2016.
 My interest in art began as a child, continued through high school, and resulted in a degree in Art Education from UW-Oshkosh. From there I accepted a position at Iola-Scandinavia Schools and built up an extensive art program before taking an early retirement. So now rather than a teacher who happens to paint, I am a painter who happens to teach. Classes are offered in my self-designed rural Iola home which contains a large studio. This painting studio, Green Tree Studio, was so named because of my love for northern Wisconsin landscapes.

I have judged many art exhibits, and my paintings have been juried into over 200 exhibits in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Illinois, including 13 national and 10 solo shows since I began doing watercolors in 1988. My work can be found in collections around the United States, as well as overseas. I have won many awards and have been accepted into Marquis’ “Who’s Who in the Midwest” and “Who’s Who in America” since 1998.   At the present time, I am represented by six galleries in Wisconsin: The Gift Itself in Green Bay, Koerten Gallery of Sevens Point, the Center for Visual Arts in Wausau, Avenue Art & Co. of Appleton, Botanicals Floral Studio in Fond du Lac, and the Waupaca Community Arts Center.Studio

     In my paintings I try to show my involvement in and fascination for textures, both visual and tactile. This has led me to incorporate the use of salt, charcoal, and rice paper, in search of interesting textures. I try to be innovative and creative with my compositions and my media, always seeking the unusual in ordinary places. The theme of nature with which my paintings deal are sometimes representational and other times more impressionistic or even abstract.
