March Artist – Oil Painter Chris Gold
Chris Gold is a representational landscape painter leaning into Impressionism, her use of light captivates the eye and the imagination.
Painting enables Gold to express her appreciation of the God given feminine strength and beauty she finds in nature. Some of her paintings include elements of surrealism that give her work an added message. Most of her landscapes are inspired by the scenic Pennsylvania area and celebrates the beauty of nature and God’s creation. Some of her paintings, such as Bursting Seedpod, explore nature up close bring out the beauty, intricacy and amazingness of nature.
Chris Gold is a resident of York, PA, who started painting later in life. Her creative journey began in 1999, when Gold and her daughter began taking private pottery lessons together. In these lessons, Gold discovered the joy of creating something functional from a lump of clay. In 2013, remembering her fascination with watching her father paint, she decided to start painting with acrylics. As her skill improved, she switched to oils and painting became her medium of choice. She found that oil paint brought a richness and pliability to her landscapes.
Now a retired nurse practitioner, Gold has more time to devote to the canvas and is showing her work in area galleries. She has been accepted into juried shows through the York Art Association and is showing work at the York Jewish Community Center and Parliament Art Organization. She is a member of the York Art Association and a juried member of the Oil Painters of America.
Come see Chris Gold’s landscape designs, botanical wildlife portraits and paintings with a surreal twist. Please note that the Friday March 13 reception has been cancelled at this time.
