This biography from the Archives of AskART:
One of Seattle’s most accomplished artist’s, Dorothy Rising had a career that spanned over eight decades.   She was born in Tacoma and attended the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and also studied with Henry G. Keller at the Cleveland Art Institute.  Keller and his students favored watercolor and other water- based mediums, which likely had a lasting influence on Rising. She also studied at the University of Washington where she received her B.F.A. and M.F.A.

Rising’s interest in Modernism stemmed from her studies with Keller who had exhibited at the Armory Show in 1913.  This approach was reinforced at the University of Washington working under Walter Isaacs and Ambrose Patterson, both of whom had international connections.

Dorothy Rising mastered several mediums including oil, watercolor and printmaking.  She was an early member of the Northwest Printmakers Society and was included in their first exhibition in 1929.  She was also a longtime member and former President of Women Painters of Washington. In 1940, she along with two other WPW members, Vara Grube Hickey and Florence Harrison Nesbit , formed the Northwest Watercolor Society which is still active today.

Her work has been featured in many local and national exhibitions including the Smithsonian Institute, the Masillon Museum in Ohio, as well as juried exhibitions in New York, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Alaska and other western states.  Locally she was a frequent exhibitor at the Henry Gallery, the Seattle Art Museum where she had a solo exhibition in 1946, and the Frye Museum. In 1948, she exhibited with Seattle artists Wendell Brazeau and Alden Mason at the Lucien Labaudt Gallery in San Francisco.

Rising became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Artist’s, London, and was a member of the National League of American Penwomen and the American Artists Professional League.
Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Seattle Art Museum, the Northwest Museum of Art & Culture, Spokane, the Tacoma Art Museum, the Frye Art Museum, the Grumbacher Collection, the Dave & Reba Williams Collection, NYC and numerous public and private collections.
