Linda Pearlman Karlsberg, a painter and draughtsman, notes “My work is about light: about the conflicts of light and shadow, desolation and beauty, and about the emotional responses light provokes.” Linda studied visual art at Boston University College for the Arts, with particular mentorship from artist-professors Conger Metcalf, Arthur Polonsky, David Aronson, and Philip Guston. Linda earned both BFA and MFAs magna cum laude at BU, was a teaching assistant while an undergraduate, and a graduate teaching fellow in painting as a graduate student. After earning her MFA, Linda continued to teach drawing, design, and painting at Boston University, The Art Institute, and other Boston area colleges. Linda has shown her work extensively including recent solo exhibitions at the Edward Hopper House, The Interchurch Center Gallery, the Newton Public Library Gallery, and the Daniels Gallery HRCA. Hew work was presented in group exhibitions at Dedee Shattuck Gallery, Five Points Gallery, Harrison Lobdell Gallery, Cahoon Museum of American Art, Trustman Gallery at Simmons College, Thompson Gallery at Cambridge School of Weston, Heftler Gallery at Endicott College, New Britain Museum of American Art, Annapolis Maritime Museum, Foundry Art Center, Westbeth Gallery, Whistler House Museum of Art, Danforth Art Museum, Monmouth Museum, National Steinbeck Center Museum, Noyes Museum, Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, Point Park University, The Art Gallery at Univ. of Maryland, and Towne Art Gallery at Wheelock College, among many others. Linda’s work was chosen in both 2008 and 2013 for the “8 Visions” exhibition at the Attleboro Art Museum.
The recipient of numerous awards for her drawings and paintings, Linda’s work has been featured in art periodicals, blogs and newspapers, and shared in numerous catalogs. Her work is in public and private collections throughout the United States.
