Biographical Info

Carolyn Newberger came to art after a long career in psychology at Harvard Medical School, dedicated to the wellbeing of children and families. Two years in the Peace Corps in Africa from 1967-1969, the diversity of her extended family, the preciousness of the people she has served in her career, and a life in music have all found their ways into her art. Watercolor painting, mixed media and collage, and a practice of drawing from life form the body of her work. She draws in real time, often in darkened concert halls, where the challenge is to keep a receptive ear and a loose hand in order to capture both performer and sound, with their rhythm, flow, and intensity. These works illustrate personal essays and music and dance reviews, some written in collaboration with her husband, Eli Newberger, in The Berkshire Edge, a publication of news, arts and ideas in Western Massachusetts. Newberger’s artwork has received numerous awards, including Watercolor Artist Magazine, the Danforth Museum of Art, the Cambridge Art Association, and the New England Watercolor Society. She has been widely exhibited in solo and group shows in Boston and beyond. A member of the New England Watercolor Society, she is represented by Galatea Fine Art in Boston, MA, The Artful Mind Gallery in Lenox, MA, and 510 Warren Street Gallery in Hudson, NY.
