In 2015, Roberta Smith wrote, “Ms Armstrong is the suave disciplinarian of a muscular style. She stacks blocky shapes of color that describe one landscape- a hill with some woods and a shack-visible from the window of her Vermont studio that may be her Mont Sainte-Victoire. But her shapes also maintain a nearly sculptural independence, hovering slightly above the image, just beyond legibility…They wear their devotions on their sleeves-Cezanne, Fauvism, Cubism, Arthur Dove- but their bigness, blockiness and electric spontaneity are quite their own…” (NYTimes, 9/25/15)

Martha Armstrong studied at the Cincinnati Art Academy, Smith College, and the Rhode Island School of Design. She has exhibited in the United States since 1967, in Italy since 2000, and has taught in community colleges, art schools, summer programs and graduate programs since the early 1970’s.
