Widely considered to be one of the finest American painters of his generation, Brian Rutenberg ’87, has spent forty years honing a distinctive method of compressing the rich color and form of his native coastal South Carolina in complex landscape paintings that imbue material reality with a deep sense of place. Join us as he shares information about his new book A Little Long Time. Much of the book is set during his time at the College of Charleston and discusses in detail the people and experiences that shaped his extraordinary career as an artist.
Mr. Rutenberg is a Fulbright Scholar, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow, a Basil Alkazzi USA Award recipient, an Irish Museum of Modern Art visiting artist program participant, and has had over two hundred exhibition throughout North America. Rutenberg’s paintings are included in such museum collections as Yale University Art Gallery, The Butler Institute of American Art, Bronx Museum of Art, Peabody Essex Museum of Art, Greenville County Museum of Art, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, South Carolina State Museum, and many others. Brian lives and works in New York City with his wife Kathryn and their two children.
