Beth Wittenberg, Urban Landscape, spray paint on canvas

About Beth Wittenberg:

Beth Wittenberg has been creating artwork professionally for over 25 years and currently lives and works in Rochester, New Hampshire. Her explorative style covers many mediums including spray paint, acrylic, paper sculpture, and fiber.

Urban Landscape explores the themes of home, permanence, and belonging. Each of these works was created in 2021, pulling from the artists’ experiences of 2020. Using her innate sense of composition, Wittenberg layers spray paint on canvas, both free form and using her vast collection of handcrafted stencils. The resulting works feel both fresh and deep, the vibrant colors pull the viewer in to explore these large-scale works.

Wittenberg received a Master of Fine Arts (1998) from the Maryland Institute College of Art after beginning graduate coursework in Art Education (1991) from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Undergraduate work includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1991) and a Bachelor of Arts (1989) from Slippery Rock University.

Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States. Recent exhibitions include the Franklin Gallery in Rochester, NH (2020); Buoy Gallery in Kittery, ME (2020); Engine Gallery in Biddeford, ME (2020), and the Harlow Gallery, Gallowell, ME (2019).
