Annabeth Rosen is a visual artist and ceramicist who creates elaborate sculptures that are “volcanic, beastly, catastrophic, and unnervingly funny,” as described by writer and critic Nancy Princenthal.1

Since 1997, Rosen has held the Robert Arneson Endowed Chair in Ceramic Sculpture at The University of California Davis. She previously taught at the Rhode Island School of Design and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, among others. Rosen’s work is included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Denver Art Museum, and The Philadelphia Museum of Art, as well as in many private collections around the country. She is the recipient of a 2016 United States Artists Fellowship, two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, and a Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Award. Rosen holds a MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI.
