Glenn Goldberg is a painter who lives and works in NYC. Born in the Bronx, he studied at the New York Studio School and earned his BA and MFA degrees from Queens College, CUNY. He has taught at Cooper Union and the NY Studio School and currently teaches at Queens College. He has also been a panelist and visiting artist for MFA painting programs at Yale, Columbia, Boston University, American University, Hunter College, and others. A recipient of many awards, he has received grants from the Edward Albee Foundation, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
In Hyperallergic, Jennifer Samet described Goldberg’s painting to be “about this meeting point of the ordinary and the other, regularity and refinement. . . He likes the hobbyist nature of tinkering with objects – but his work, and ideas, are ethereal.”
Goldberg’s work has been shown extensively throughout the U.S., with solo exhibitions at Betty Cuningham Gallery and Jason McCoy Gallery in NYC. In 2018, a two-person exhibition with Goldberg and Amber Scoon, entitled “?” (A Series of Collaborative Works), was held at the gallery at WCSU, which coincided with the publication of their book, “?”, by Atropos Press. His works are in private and museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Guggenheim Museum, Brooklyn Museum, National Gallery of Art, High Museum, and Museum of Contemporary Art, LA.
