Rose Piper

Rose Piper attended Hunter College in New York and continued her art studies at The Art Students League where she studied with Vaclav Vytacil & Yasuo Kuniyoshi. Piper received a Rosenwald Fellowship in 1946 and 1947 and in 1947-1948 spent a year of independent study in Paris. Ms. Piper gained national acclaim with her first solo show in New York. In 1948 she was part of the 7th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Negro Art sponsored by Atlantic University. The show included works by Charles Alston, Romare Bearden, Richard Barthe and Jacob Lawrence. Piper's painting "Greivin' Hearted" took first place. Because of family problems Piper had to leave her fine art behind to keep the family together. She was very resourceful and eventually became a major designer in the fashion industry winning numerous awards for her fabrics.

Piper retired in 1980 but she began drawing and painting again in 1978. She has since had several very successful exhibitions and had been in many invitationals. Piper is represented here with a beautiful ink drawing,
