Born 1928 in Brooklyn, NY. A product of the Art Students League, Bogat was influenced early on by the theory of “Aesthetic Realism” and worked as an abstract impressionist. By 1960, she had developed her own unique style of abstraction. Bogat took an active part in New York’s art scene, frequenting 10th Street openings and the famous Cedar Bar. She developed close friendships with many art world luminaries who influenced her life and work, including Eva Hesse, Elaine de Kooning, Donald Judd, Sam Francis, Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko and Alfred Jensen, whom she married in 1963. She has shown in solo exhibits at Art101 (Brooklyn, NY), the New Jersey State Museum (Trenton, NJ), Galerie Zürcher (Paris, France), and Zürcher Gallery (New York, NY). Her work has been included in group exhibits at Trestle Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Terrain Gallery (New York, NY), Women’s Interart Center (New York, NY), Summit Art Center (Summit, NJ), and the Tang Museum (Saratoga Springs, NY). Her work was included in the seminal exhibit Women Choose Women, curated by Lucy Lippard at the New York Cultural Center in 1973. Cord Painting 1977 has just been acquired by the Blanton Museum, Austin, Texas. She currently lives and works in New Jersey. She is represented by Zurcher Gallery, New York/ Paris.
