Visit Studio #5 of this weekend’s Studio Tour for a multi-disciplinary creative experience.  In a Geer Lane studio, perched on a hill just outside Eastsound, Rosemarie Altberg creates etchings, drawings and watercolors.  She is also a turner of wooden bowls, boxes and rings, and a maker of integrated metal and wood jewelry.

Her wearable art centers on copper and silver pendant necklaces that look like tiny sculptural collages.

Synthesized media yield works integrating the aesthetic, utility and explorative creativity with highly evolved craftsmanship.”

On Friday and Saturday, Rosemarie will do a turning demonstration.  Her friend, the artist Sue Lam, will help with a watercolor demonstration on Saturday.


Born in Bremen, Germany, Rosemarie is a broadly accomplished artist who holds a BA in Art Education from American University in Washington DC, and a MA in Printmaking and Drawing from Northern Illinois University. Her teaching career include stints in  Alexandria, Chicago and San Francisco Bay Areas.

I bring a comprehensive, historic, artistic and design background to my work in a multiplicity of media.”

Come see what Rosemarie will make this weekend!
