Rose Umerlik extracts the intangible emotional moments that live in our collective human psyche and interprets them abstractly through form, line and color so that they may also exist outside of ourselves.
In recent years, Umerlik has shown in seven solo exhibitions and innumerable group shows domestically and internationally, published a book of work titled Intimacy of Forms, received notable reviews in such publications as Art New England, and been awarded the Clowes Award by the Vermont Studio Center. The most affecting experience of Umerlik’s career to date has been her two-month stay in the Takt Kunstprojektraum Artist Residency in Berlin, Germany.
She currently lives and works in Vermont and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University. She was recently named a 2018 Vermont Artist to Watch. She has been exhibiting her work since 2005
