She has had several artist residencies, at Vermont Studio Center and in France and Italy. Over the past thirty years, she has exhibited paintings in numerous galleries, art centers, and public spaces. Her paintings are in private collections in Philadelphia as well as in New Jersey, Delaware, Ohio, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia, Louisiana, Florida, California and Oregon. Her work has been shown abroad in Paris, France, and in Italy, where her paintings are currently on exhibit in Assisi and in Todi. Barbara Rosin has worked as an art therapist and has taught for over thirty years. She has illustrated several book covers, including sociological texts, cookbooks, and poetry journals. Her work has been shown widely in numerous juried shows, as well as in ten solo exhibits. She has been a featured artist for the last seven years in the Philadelphia Artists Open Studio Tour.
Barbara Rosin has worked on several collaborative projects, domestically and in Italy, involving her interests in both poetry and prose literature, as well as in peace and justice issues. She has worked with several Italian American poets, interpreting their poetry with her stylistic, imaginative drawings. Recently, she took part in a literary symposium at the University of Pennsylvania, where a panel discussion explored themes of immigration experience as expressed in art and writing. A few years ago, a collaborative project with Il Centro di Pace in Assissi, Italy culminated in a display at the United Nations in New York. This experience led to a subsequent solo exhibit of her Umbrian paintings in Assissi. In the past 15 years, she has concentrated on landscape paintings and drawings, inspired by time spent in Italy.
