Sherry Buckberrough has taught for the past 40 years at the University of Hartford, where she has developed more than 30 specialized courses on topics in modern and contemporary art, women’s art, ecoart, history of design, history of color, and contemporary globalism. Her dissertation from the University of California, Berkeley, on Robert Delaunay was published as a monograph, and her work has returned consistently to topics on the Parisian avant-garde. She has specialized in the work of Sonia Delaunay, for which she curated the first American retrospective, sponsored by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and accompanied by a major catalog. Most recently she contributed to the catalog for Sonia Delaunay, a retrospective shown at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the Tate Modern. She has written widely on modernist and contemporary women artists, including Barbara Hepworth, Louise Bourgeois, Louise Nevelson, Mierle Ukeles, Ana Mendieta, and Carolee Schneemann, and curated an exhibition and contributed essays to the catalog for WomenArtists@NewBritainMusem at the New Britain Museum of American Art. She also has been active in ecological concerns and ecological art actions in Hartford and is now a coordinating a yearlong project to enhance the ecology of the Park River, which runs through the University of Hartford campus, through art.
