Date: American painter, sculptor and photographer, born 1935
Biography: A native Texan, Betty Gold was first a painter before transitioning to sculpture. She credits her mother, who worked on an airline assembly during World War II, as an influence on her shift to sculpting. She has noted that all of her work, with the exception of photography, has been based on geometry, and her large scale outdoor sculptures are the result of such explorations.
