Theresa Rose

Theresa Rose lives and works in her beloved hometown, Philadelphia, PA, as an artist, educator, and arts organizer. Her passion for the city fuels the content of her studio and curatorial practice. Rose’s mixed-media works on paper pay tribute to the complex beauty found in the urban environment.

Rose’s curatorial work equally uses the urban landscape as a site for play and social possibility. From testing the urban soil and offering free soup, (Futurefarmers’ Soil Kitchen) to new forms of economy in the culturally dense 9th Street Market (Jon Rubin’s 9th Street Stock Exchange), her projects continue to explore the possibilities of urban life.

Rose earned a BA in Art Education from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, and MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She is also a certified Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher. Her work has been part of exhibitions at Fleisher Art Memorial, Institute of Contemporary Art, The Print Center, Little Berlin, Crane Arts, and Seraphin Gallery.
