Early life and education

Goldberg was born in Baltimore, Maryland. She received a B.A. in American Studies from the University of Maryland. She then moved to Washington, DC and pursued her education at the Corcoran School of Art, where she studied under painters from the Washington Color School, including Gene Davis and Tom Green. She was subsequently awarded the Eugene M. Weisz award upon graduation from the Corcoran School of Art.[5]


Goldberg's work has been shown in over 100 exhibitions,[6][7][8] including solo painting exhibits that traveled throughout Spain and Mexico. Museums and private collections which house her work include New Orleans Museum of Art, Foosaner Art Museum, and the National Museum for Women in the Arts,[9] as well as public sculpture installations at Medina del Campo Sculpture Park, The Kreeger Museum, The Katzen Arts Center at American University, and George Washington University. In 2012, her work was featured on the cover for Art Santa Fe.[10] That same year, she produced the award-winning film, The Color of Time,[11] and was awarded third prize for a sculpture installation scheduled for the Parque de Levante in Murcia, Spain.[12]

Goldberg's involvements in connecting art and science began in the late 1980s. In 1989 and 1990, she produced the "Voices of Our Time" lecture series which connected artists and scientists in dialogue.[13] In 2012, she and neuro-scientist, Dr. Partha Mitra, participated in Fré Ilgen's panel discussion, CHECKPOINT ILGEN #9, in Berlin, Germany, which focused on creativity and the brain.[1] She has taught at American University and the University of Maryland. In the early 2000s, she was Artist in Residence at Chautauqua Institute, and in 2010 received the Maryland State Arts Award. She has served on the board of The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC and on the Collector’s Committee of the Reading Public Museum.[14]

Her artwork has been described as "intricate works of science and nature, windows into imagined cosmos, explosions of symbols and letters, and wobbly story book scenes."[15] Another art critic saw them as "a carnival of color, form and motion, with each painting revealing different elements depending on where in the room you stand to view it."[16]

She is represented by Addison/Ripley Fine Art in Washington, DC.[17]
