Carla Goldberg



As an abstract mixed media artist, the fluidity of line meandering through deep layers of watery, pooling resin is my visual language. I paint about bodies of water using a cross section of folklore, culture, and science. I enjoy using new and unlikely materials and combining them with traditional art mediums, pushing those materials constantly into new forms.


Originally from Palm Springs, CA. Goldberg graduated with honors from the University of Redlands in California and received my MFA from MICA. She now makes the Hudson Valley region of New York her home, which invariably makes its way into the subject matter of many of her works. Carla’s art has been shown nationally and internationally. She has exhibited in museums such as The Tabernacle, MOMA Wales, Brooklyn Waterfront Museum and the Dolmabahce Palace (State Gallery) Istanbul, Turkey.

Goldberg has exhibited at numerous universities in solo shows including, UConn and Southwestern Minnesota University Museum of Art and group shows at the University of Malta, Ostra Gymnasiet in Sweden and the Holbæk Art School in Denmark for the Global Village Stories Project. Her work can be found in public spaces and private collections such as Johns Hopkins Hospital- Baltimore, MD, State Farm Insurance- Palm Springs, CA, Swiss Re- Armonk, NY, Raven Paul & Company, Burbank, CA and Mid-Hudson Gastroenterology-Cortlandt Manor, NY.
