The Art of Gladys Goldstein

View this Baltimore artist's work, part of UMGC's Maryland Artist Collection.

Baltimore artist Gladys Goldstein (1918–2010) wrote, "My canvases are not explicit statements, but hints of things that are, or were, or might have been—of memories, of feelings."

Although her work is abstract, Goldstein's primary source of inspiration was nature. She created the impression of light emanating from within her paintings and captured the essence, rather than the appearance, of the natural world. In an artistic career spanning more than 70 years, Goldstein worked with oils, acrylics, watercolor, drawing, collage, and handmade paper. Goldstein was also the first American artist to use the Mexican printmaking technique mixographia to create and reproduce textured prints.

The exhibition Capturing the Essence: The Art of Gladys Goldstein celebrated the opening of the Gladys Goldstein Gallery in the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center. The gallery holds the university's permanent display of contemporary abstract art.
