Rosemary Sloggatt…

Born in Munich, Germany in 1959, the youngest child of a military family, Ms. Sloggatt grew up in Asheville, North Carolina. The city’s thriving arts community offered inspiration as she began to draw and paint the world around her. One of a family of avid readers, the stories and illustrations she found in the books they read provided inspiration throughout her career.

The artist attended the North Carolina School of the Arts, in 1975, one of seven students accepted into the Visual Arts program that year. An intensive 2-year immersion into the visual arts followed. The opportunity to be immersed in art all day and often in the open studios in the evening confirmed her commitment to be an artist.

Ms. Sloggatt studied art at Parsons School of Design and Otis Art Institute, living in both New York and Los Angeles. During this time she worked as a page at the New York Public Research Library, in the Art, Prints, and Photographs Division. The library’s impressive holdings cemented for her the connection between art and books. Following undergraduate studies she enrolled at Bank Street College, completing a Master’s Degree in Museum Education. While pursuing a ten-year museum career she married and started a family. She joined the Great Neck Public Schools in 1995 and has taught art there for more than 20 years.

The time constraints imposed by motherhood and work made the book format ideal as a way to continue to make art. The first of these was shown at the IAM in 1991. Subsequent responses to open calls resulted in participation in additional exhibits including, All in the Family, New York Bound: The International Book Art Biennial and most recently, Private Viewing for Your Eyes Only.
