Rosetta's Sculptures

Her sleek, hard-edged sculptures reflect Rosetta's life-long love of creating in three dimensions, a passionate pursuit of excellence, inspiration from the concepts of power, nobility and beauty in nature, and the ability to capture the fluid life force of her animal subjects.

A fellow of the National Sculpture Society and member of the Society of Animal Artists, the Northwest Rendezvous Group and American Women Artists, Rosetta has won awards from these organizations as well as from the Allied Artists of America, Bennington Center for the Arts, Pen & Brush, Inc. and the Bosque Conservatory Art Council, among others.

Exhibitions include solo shows at the Brevard Museum of Art and Science in Melbourne, FL, Indiana University, Southwestern Michigan College, Southern Oregon State College and Gallery Americana in Carmel, CA, and group shows at Brookgreen Gardens, Meguro Museum of Art in Tokyo, The Smithsonian Institution, National Academy of Design, National Museum of Wildlife Art, North American Sculpture Exhibition, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, California Museum of Art, J.N. Bartfield Gallery in NYC, Albuquerque Museum of Art and "Feline Fine" traveling exhibition.

Commissions include the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in WI, Brookgreen Gardens in SC, MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Hewlett-Packard, Chapman University in CA, Florida Institute of Technology, ArtWorks in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), The Shops at Walnut Creek (shopping center) in Westminster, CO and the cities of Steamboat Springs, CO, Loveland, CO, Lakewood, CO, and Dowagiac, MI.

Support for Conservation:
Rosetta has donated sculptures to the African Wildlife Foundation, the Cheetah Conservation Fund and the private wildlife preserve, Shambala, for the purpose of fundraising, with only the casting and shipping costs retained by the artist.
