Art Brokerage - American artist and sculptor Carol Gold. Born in Hartford, Conn., Gold grew up on a dairy farm in western Massachusetts. While attending Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., and Boston University School of Fine Arts. Gold focused on graphic arts, drawing and woodcuts. Kept busy raising a family, it wasn't until more than 10 years after any formal art training that Gold completed her first sculpture - a figure of her daughter in clay. Encouraged by another artist, she had it cast in bronze and discovered her true medium.
The joy Carol Gold experiences from the technical process of bronze casting resulted in a 12-year partnership in a foundry business. Though Gold is no longer a partner in the foundry, she is still highly involved in the entire process--from making her own molds to chasing the metal and applying the patina. For more than 20 years, Gold's work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and Canada where she has received numerous awards, including the John Cavanaugh Memorial Award in 1989 form the National Sculpture Society located in New York City.
