Carol Ross has received numerous awards in juried shows
throughout California, including the Fine Arts Exhibit at the California
State Fair, the Yosemite Renaissance International, the Vacaville Art
Show, Tracy Expressions and various shows at the Sacramento Fine Arts
She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the College of Painting
and Design at Carnegie Mellon University in Pennsylvania. Her career
has included teaching art in the Cleveland Public Schools, working with
22 art directors at a major advertising agency in San Francisco, and
working as a Graphic Artist for the State of California.
Carol’s line drawings are familiar to Sacramento area residents
as well as to Bay Area residents. For three years she illustrated a
weekly column on bicycle tours, which appeared in the Sacramento Bee
and seasonally in the Oakland Tribune and San Francisco Examiner. This
was followed by three books published on bicycle tours: “Great
Bike Rides in Northern California”, “Geared for Good Times”,
and “It’s All Downhill from Here”. She also has illustrated
articles on cross-country skiing.
Carol now divides her time between pastel,
oil, and acrylic painting. Her admiration for the artists of the Impressionist
period is reflected in her search for just the right colors to express
Carol's art can be viewed at the "Gang of Five" studio located upstairs at the ARTHOUSE, 1021 R Street, Sacramento California.
