Painter and printmaker Berta Golahny art exhibition at Foxdale Community Art Gallery



The painter and printmaker Berta Golahny (Detroit 1925-Newton 2005) created images

in response to the human condition, and expressive of tragedy, joy, and wonder. This selection

of paintings and prints includes works from 1950 to 1995. Many of the works belong to series,

often developed over decades: Children at the Fair; Landscape of Man; Psalms; Genesis; and

Cosmos. Consistently these works investigate the place of humanity in the earthly and cosmic

worlds.


Born in Detroit, Golahny attended the prestigious Cass Technical High School, a

training ground for artists as well as engineers. She studied at the Art Students League in New

York City, The Art Institute of Chicago (B.F.A.) and the University of Iowa (M.F.A.). She

received many awards, including fellowships from the Tiffany Foundation and t
