KC Rosenberg

KC Rosenberg is an interdisciplinary artist with an emphasis in painting. Her art practice points to humorous vulnerabilities that come through minute decisions; transformations to seemingly useless materials; and absurdities in how time gets used, and for what, thus questioning issues of privilege and need.

She has participated in exhibitions around the United States and has shown her work in local venues such as Patricia Sweetow Gallery and Andrea Schwartz Gallery in San Francisco. She has been awarded residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine and the Blue Mountain Center in New York.

On being a professor of art, KC states, "A student once told me that my enthusiasm for teaching the arts helped her to make life decisions, and this was the best compliment. My main objective in teaching is to push for creativity and risk taking while presenting solid fundamentals, conceptually and formally. I put lot of weight on problem solving and defining individual visual vocabulary. It is very rewarding to exchange with students ideas of keeping an artistic practice: the practicality, the reality, the bravery, and the importance."

KC has also taught at the San Francisco Art Institute, the University of San Francisco, and the University of California, Davis.
