Special Announcement from Hopkins Center for the Arts

Carolyn Kleinberger 'Up Close From A Distance'

This series of portraits address the alienation of isolation Carolyn Kleinberger felt during the social distancing of COVID and her drive to recapture a sense of connection with community. She chose models whose faces, personalities and emotions she knows well - friends, children of friends or, in a couple of instances, family. They differ from each other not only in appearance, but also in terms of backgrounds, life experiences, stages of life and approaches to life. As she worked on each painting in her studio, Kleinberger "felt closer to people whom COVID prevented me from embracing in real life."

Art as an Oasis


Art as an Oasis is a series of occasional postings featuring my art combined with words of wisdom from a diversity of others.
For the most part, my paintings seek to identify and accentuate the beauty in ordinary subjects. In this way, I hope to provide a temporary oasis from both mundane and monumental cares.  


Even in the best of times “the world is too much with us, late and soon;  we lay waste our powers and for everything are out of tune.”
