Barbara Weissberger holds a MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Play is central to her process; images grow out of improvisation and the pleasure of working with materials. Her work has been shown at various venues, including the Drawing Center, PS1/MoMA, DUMBO Art Center, and White Columns in New York; GRIDSPACE Brooklyn; and Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Grants and fellowships include a Guggenheim Fellowship, residencies at The Camargo Foundation (France), the Hambidge Center (NEA DIstinguished Fellow 2013), Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus (Germany), the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, the Ucross Foundation, VCCA, and the Montana Artists Refuge. She divides her time between Pittsburgh and New York.
