“All of my life, making art has been my passion. As I have experienced life, the forms that my works have
taken have evolved and deepened, and my love for creating has endured.”

Realta, by Gabriele Caioni, which is available in both English and Italian. Her monumental sculpture Grande
Catalina is featured in A History of Western Art by Antony Mason and John T. Spike and published by
Abrams Books in twelve languages.

Feuerman had her first museum retrospective at the Queens Museum in 1987, followed by her second
retrospective at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in 2000.  In 2004, her sculpture Sunburn was
featured in the highly acclaimed traveling group exhibition “An American Odyssey, 1945/1980: Debating
Modernism”, curated by Stephen C. Foster, at the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid.  The same year
Feuerman had her third retrospective “Resin to Bronze Topographies” at the City University of New York.  In
2007 at the Venice Biennale, Feuerman’s monumental sculptures  Survival of Serena and Grande Catalina
were showcased in a solo exhibition entitled “By the Sea” and curated by John T. Spike. Simultaneous to
this, she exhibited in OPEN 2007, an international sculpture exhibition in Venice, and in another solo show at
Art-St-Urban in Switzerland entitled “Lust and Desires”.  Following these successes, she exhibited in
Florence’s Moretti Gallery and was the featured artist in “46 XX” at Moscow’s Na Solyanke State Gallery in
Red Square. In 2008 the Archeological Museum in Fiesole, Italy hosted her fourth museum retrospective and
was followed by inclusion in “Art and Illusion: Masterpieces of Trompe-l’oeil from Antiquity to the Present” at
the Palazzo Strozzi Foundation.  The year closed with her fifth retrospective “Silence-Passion-Expression” at
the Amarillo Museum of Art in Texas, which was nominated by the AISEI for the best Monographic
Exhibition. In 2010, Feuerman’s sculpture Monumental Shower was feautured in “Intimacy, Bathing in Art” at
the Kunstmuseum Ahlen in Germany alongside works by ninety artists including Edgar Degas, Louise
Bourgeois, David Hockney and Joseph Beuys. Later that year, Feuerman had her sixth retrospective,
entitled “Earth Water Air Fire”, at the El Paso Museum of Art, which showcased fifty-two works and
premiered her video installations.  Following the close of the exhibition, her sculpture Summer was acquired
for the museum’s permanent collection. In 2011, she founded the “Carole A. Feuerman Sculpture
Foundation” in Mana Contemporary Art Center located in Jersey City, and later that year her bronze sphere
New World – AM/PM was featured in “Afterwards and Forward: A ten year 9/11 reflective art exhibition” at
the New Jersey City University.

In 2012, Feuerman’s most iconic monumental sculpture, Survival of Serena in painted bronze, was selected
and publicly exhibited in Petrosino Square, SoHo by New York City Parks & Recreation from May through
September. Simultaneous to the exhibition, Feuerman presented her first set of prints also featuring the
image of Serena. At the close of the exhibition, Survival of Serena travelled to the Boca Beach Club in
Florida where it is currently on view with Baker Sponder Gallery. Next Summer, also in hyperrealistically
painted bronze, is installed at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne in Miami courtesy of Baker Sponder Gallery.
Monumental Brooke with Beach Ball was chosen for the 2012 Beijing Biennale and exhibited at the National
Art Museum of China from September 28 through October 22 courtesy of Timothy Yarger Fine Art. Quan, a
monumental hyperrealistically painted bronze figure balancing on a polished stainless steel ball, debuted at
Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park September 19th and remained on view through January 2013.
Also in September, another public work titled The Golden Mean, a 16-foot tall bronze patinated diver, was
unveiled along the Hudson River at Riverfront Green Park in Peekskill with the Hudson Valley Center for
Contemporary Art. In 2013, the City of Peekskill announced the purchase of the sculpture as a permanent
monument for the town.

At the start of 2013, Timothy Yarger Fine Art featured several sculptures by Feuerman at the Palm Springs
Art Fair. Monumental Brooke with Beach Ball and Next Summer greeted guests at the entrance, Monumental
Shower encompanied visitors in the collector’s lounge, and several smaller works were on display in the
gallery’s booth. Simultaneous to that, KM Fine Arts featured Feuerman’s sculptures and prints at Art

showcase at the Dallas Art Fair in April.

Feuerman’s life-size work, The General’s Daughter, was chosen by the Smithsonian to be shown at the
National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC from March 23, 2013 through February 23, 2014. In April, Rarity
Gallery will display several of Feuerman’s large-scale sculptures at Art Monaco and during the gallery’s
summer salon show in Mykonos. Jim Kempner Fine Art will showcase Feuerman’s newest works in a solo
presentation opening May 16 in New York City. For the 2013 Venice Biennale, the GlobalArtAffairs
Foundation has selected Quan for display in the courtyard of the historic Palazzo Bembo and The Golden
Mean will be prominently displayed at the entrance in Giardini with the Concilio Europeo dell’Arte. A selection
of her sculptures will also be showcased at the Arezzo Biennale as part of the Glocal Women 1st
International Art Exhibition with Paivi Pro Arte. In July, Mark Borghi Fine Art will feature a solo exhibition of
Feuerman’s sculptures and prints at their Bridgehampton location in addition to showcasing her work at Art
