Paintings, small ceramic objects, and works on paper by Glenn Goldberg (b. 1953)—a prolific Brooklyn-based painter—will be featured in a new exhibition Of Leaves and Clouds. The show focuses on the artist’s intimate relationship with nature, a theme that can be traced throughout his decades-long career. It features Goldberg’s most recent paintings completed in his Brooklyn studio. The works in the exhibit have a common feature: his ever-present dots over light washes of color creating multiple layers within each composition. Goldberg’s signature marks not only structure the space, but also are a record of the artist’s concentrated attention, time, and devotion. Visitors will discover elements in his work such as mandalas, flower forms, and leaves, all delineated using dots and stencils reference Australian aboriginal painting. 

Well-versed in European and American art from his studies at the New York Studio School and Queens College, Glenn Goldberg also draws inspiration from African and Asian art, textiles, and decorative art. His works are in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the High Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Art. The original exhibition was organized by FreedmanArt, New York, and was also on view at Luther W. Brady Art Gallery at The George Washington University, Washington, DC.
