The Art of Gladys Goldstein

Paintings, Handmade Papers, Candy Wrappers, and More

Capturing the Essence

Opening May 3, 2004
University of Maryland University College
Arts program Gallery

Baltimore artist Gladys Goldstein 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 is nature. She creates the impression of light emanating from within her paintings and captures the essence, rather than the appearance, of the natural world. In an artistic career spanning six decades, Goldstein has 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 celebrates the opening of the permanent Gladys Goldstein Gallery in the UMUC Inn and Conference Center. This gallery will be the university's first permanent display of contemporary abstract art.
