ABOUT THE JUROR
ROSEMARY ALLEN has been working as a professional artist for 46 years along with her artist husband, Wheatley Allen. She attended San Francisco Art Institute in the 1960s and California College of Arts and Crafts (now CCA) where she earned a BFA with high distinction in 1989. Rosemary has had several one-woman shows in the Bay Area and northern California and participated in numerous group shows. She was one of the selected artists for the Bay Area Currents Show at the Pro Arts Gallery in downtown Oakland.

Although she is best known for her abstract painting and use of color, she also paints the figure, keeping her brush strokes and lines loose in a gestured manner much like the California figurative painters of the 1960s. Her latest work is a series of California Workers, depicting construction workers and urban farmers (each 4’ x 6’ oils on canvas) and she is currently working on a similar series of Workers on the Northern Coast to be finished next year. She is represented by Partners Gallery, Fort Bragg, CA. A review of her work by Kenneth Baker in the San Francisco Chronicle, along with her statement of purpose for the workers series and her abstracts, can be found on her website, rosemaryallen.com.
