Gormley Gallery is pleased to present a survey of Baltimore abstract artist and former Notre Dame Art faculty member's work in Gladys Goldstein: Retrospective and Alumnae Invitational, opening September 3. The exhibition will present a range of Goldstein's  artistic accomplishments alongside the work of selected Art department alumnae.

Gladys Goldstein was a prolific Baltimore artist whose career spanned six decades. She is widely known for her abstract paintings, and ground-breaking artwork with collage and handmade paper. Gladys Goldstein studied art at the Maryland Institute College of Art and later the Art Students League, in New York. Goldstein was an active participant in Baltimore’s art community, exhibiting locally and internationally.

Concerning her abstractions, Goldstein has said, “My canvases are not explicit statements, but hints of things that are, or were, or might have been – of memories, of feelings."

Several of her former students have been invited to exhibit alongside the work of their former teacher. Exhibiting alumnae include Kate Purvis-Montoya '68, Marsha Gallo' 68, Claudia A. DeMonte '69, Carla Tomaszewski '73, Lucy Jaffe '77, Sarah Butcher ’80, and Effie Gereny.

Goldstein taught seniors in the Art department at Notre Dame from 1964 to 1982. Of her students at then College of Notre Dame, Goldstein said, “They were really interested in new ideas. . . . That was a wonderful experience.” Goldstein passed away in 2010.

This exhibit is made possible through the loan of artworks from the University of Maryland University College Maryland Artist Collection. Since 1978, University of Maryland University College (UMUC) has proudly shown works from a large collection of international and Maryland artists at the UMUC Inn and Conference Center in Adelphi, Maryland, a few miles from the nation’s capital.

Through Notre Dame of Maryland University's Art Department, Gormley Gallery provides a space for emerging and established artists and engages the community through art.

Gormley Gallery is supported by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive. Funding for the Maryland State Arts Council is also provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Free admission. For more information, call 410-532-5582 or log onto www.ndm.edu/gormleygallery.
