New York-based painter Glenn Goldberg answers questions about the beginning of his career in the 70s and 80s, and his experiences finding the right gallery, including leaving a high-profile gallery to locate a better fit for his work and his goals. The artist also expounds on measuring success, both personally and professionally.
“I have an appetite. I’m always trying to grow and learn and be more courageous. With my last show in New York, I felt rather vulnerable… It wasn’t an easy thing, and that, to me, was a very valuable lesson.”
Born and raised in New York, painter Glenn Goldberg has exhibited widely over the past 30 years including exhibitions at Harvard University, Knoedler & Co. in New York, Pace Editions in New York, Galerie Albrecht in Munich, and Honor Fraser Gallery in Venice, CA. Goldberg’s work can be found in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the High Museum in Atlanta, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, and he has been the recipient of such prestigious awards as the National Endowment for the Arts and a Guggenheim Fellowship. Goldberg is represented by Jason McCoy Gallery in New York, Hill Gallery in Birmingham, MI and Linda Warren Projects in Chicago.
