Biography from a third party submitted on 10/10/2006:
Ginger Osgood.

The influence of this Mid-Century California Modernists has been wide spread for inspiration in creating new art forms. Her love of nature, the human spirit, and the dynamic tension of form and color animated her work.

Ginger Osgood had tremendous vision and worked in a wide range of mediums including serigraphs, collagraphs, etchings, watercolor, acrylics and oil, with all serigraphs, collagraphs and etchings hand done by her.  Each piece is unique in its conception and tells a story.

Her artwork is in the permanent collections of museums, corporations and private collectors throughout the world, including the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum, Boston Museum, Cleveland, St. Louis and Denver Museums, Irving Trust Company office in New Zealand, the Japan Bank, the New York Public Library and the Library of Congress among numerous others.

A significant amount of her artwork has remained in a private collection until now. Linda Anderson and Gayle Drees, the daughter and granddaughter of the artists, and executors of the estate are making a small grouping of works available for private placement, for the first time in over 25 years.
