Abstract artist and New Jersey Native, Alyce Gottesman, is new to the gallery and inspired by the rhythms of the seasons and the energy of nature. She travels to California for a few months out of the year to work in the beautiful quality of the west coast light. She is also very influence by music, stating, “Working in the abstract, I feel like I am channeling the vigor and cadences of nature and music. Rhythms appear as drips and brushstrokes; colors and patterns are quiet, loud, energized, and erratic.”
Alyce Gottesman's paintings and drawings have been exhibited extensively in the New York metro area and nationally including shows at The Painting Center, Kent State University, Montclair Art Museum and Johnson & Johnson Headquarters Gallery. Awards include a NJ State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship, Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation Fellowship and Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Residency Fellowship. Her work is part of numerous private and public collections including the Brooklyn Art Library, Provident Bank of NJ, SAP of America Johnson & Johnson, The College of NJ and William Paterson University. She earned a BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University, an MFA from School of Visual Arts.
