Rena Segal has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in painting.
In preparation for her career, Ms. Segal attended Montclair State College, graduating with a BFA in 1975, and continued her academic pursuits at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, where she received an MFA in 1977. Since she was a young woman, she knew she wanted to pursue a career as a painter. Her father and his friends were highly influential to her early development—instead of taking trips to the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building like her peers, Ms. Segal took trips to museums. This informal art history education contributed to her development as a creator, and she recalls the first time that her work was shown in a museum as the culmination of her efforts.
Ms. Segal’s paintings have been exhibited in myriad shows, museums, collections and galleries. Among the museums where her work has been featured include the Laforet Museum Harajuku in Tokyo, Japan, in 1986, the Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey, in 1987 and the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton, New Jersey, in 1989. Recently, Ms. Segal’s paintings have been shown in the Rabbet Gallery and The Heldrich in New Brunswick, New Jersey. In 1985, she became a fellow of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, and she currently serves as the president of the George and Helen Segal Foundation. In the coming years, she plans to continue her artistic pursuits, and as a testament to her success and esteem, she has been selected for inclusion in multiple editions of Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women.
