Rosemary Goodell was born in California and studied at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston, UCLA and received a Bachelor of Arts in Art from the Museum of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the University of California, Berkeley. In 2003, she was awarded a visual artist fellowship from the Louisiana Division of the Arts. She received a Fulbright Memorial Fund Fellowship to study and travel in Japan in 1998. Goodell completed a painting fellowship at Skidmore College in 1996 and a residency in painting at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT in 2001 and 2008. Her paintings have been in multiple national and local shows and have graced the covers of Country Roads magazine, Merci and the Boston Museum School magazines as well as being pictured and reviewed in Orleans, Morning Advocate, Times Picayune and School Arts. Her work is included in both private and public collections. She is employed on the art faculty at Baton Rouge Community College and has been an artist member of the gallery since 1982.


Stages of Creation, Goodell’s most recent incarnations of paintings on view at the gallery, explores creation and all it manifestations. Utilizing her signature bold abstract style, they highlight questions that have intrigued man since the dawn of time. How were the universe and the Earth created?  What lies behind the complexity of life on Earth? Whether inspired by the book of Genesis, geological formations or even personal mythology, Goodell’s work is sure to arouse more questions within their viewers.
