Carol Schlosberg (14 June 1957 – 29 March 1998) was an American painter. During her brief career, she was known for abstract works that have been described as "textured, abstract, sometimes geometric, sometimes free-form."[1] Her career was cut short when she was murdered during a vacation trip to Mexico in 1998.


Schlosberg initially studied painting at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts, where her teachers included painter George Gabin. In 1989 she received a fellowship to study at the Yale Norfolk Summer School of Music and Art in Norfolk, Conn. She subsequently pursued a graduate degree at Yale University, where she studied with William Bailey, Gregory Amernoff, Andrew Forge, Natalie Charkow and Richard Lytle. Schlosberg earned an M.F.A. from Yale in 1992. After her study at Yale, she exhibited throughout the region.


On 29 March 1998, Schlosberg was murdered while vacationing in the resort town of Puerto Escondido, Mexico. Her murder was the subject of a report on the ABC television news program "20/20" on 27 April 1998.

After her death, her life and artistic career were recognized by Montserrat College of Art, which named the Carol Schlosberg Gallery in her honor.
