Faculty Profile

Annabeth Rosen
Co-Chair, Department of Art and Art History
Professor of Art

Annabeth Rosen studied at Alfred University (BFA) and the Cranbrook Academy of Art (MFA), and has gone on to teach at the Rhode Island School of Design, the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Since 1997 she has held the Robert Arneson Endowed Chair at the University of California Davis.

Rosen’s sculptures made of fired and glazed clay seem to have neither fixed contours or stable shape, even their scale appears to shift as you look. They are variously volcanic, beastly, catastrophic, and unnervingly funny, suggesting things going terribly wrong, but not yet irreversible—Nancy Princenthal.

Rosen’s work has been widely exhibited in the U.S. and is in the collection of the LA County Museum, the Oakland Museum, the Denver Art Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and many public and private collections. She shows her work with Gallery Paule Anglim in San Francisco. Rosen has received multiple grants and awards, a Pew Fellowship, two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, a UC Davis Chancellor’s Fellowship, and a Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Award.
