Carol Barenberg

Carol had her first public show at 15 in Copley Square, Boston. For the next eight years she studied with one of the founders of Boston Expressionism, Hyman Bloom.

She then went on to graduate from Sarah Lawrence College and attend Boston University Medical School, where she furthered her knowledge of anatomy by dissecting a human cadaver.

At the age of 25, Carol became an instant celebrity by selling all her paintings at her first one-man show at the ACA Gallery in New York City. From there she went on to show her work at The Jewish Museum in New York, The Brooklyn Museum, The Staten Island Museum, The A.C.A. Gallery in New York, The Seligmann Gallery in New York, The National Institute of Arts and Sciences, the Davenport Art Museum, and numerous group shows throughout the country.

In 2002, her triptych of the Munich Massacre was honored by The Minister of Arts and Culture of Israel, the Head of the Olympic Committee in Israel, and the wives of the murdered athletes. The Munich Massacre triptych is on permanent display at The Wingate Hall of Fame in Israel.

One of the themes running throughout Carol’s work is that of living well despite tragedy. After 9/11 Carol did a series of paintings depicting her love of New York City and people enjoying life.

Much of her work depicts biblical subjects such as “Joseph Falling Down the Pit,” “Joseph and Jacob's Reunion in Egypt.”

She is currently working on a series of city scenes that depict musicians, dancers, and skyscrapers.

Carol’s work is part of many private collections throughout the United States.
