Prints for Print Library Fundraiser featuring Dr. Goldberg
The Huntingdon Valley Library is pleased to be hosting the “Prints for Print” art exhibit starting November 20, 2013 featuring limited edition prints of original oil paintings by Dr. Richard E. Goldberg. Certified and numbered prints of Dr. Goldberg’s paintings can be purchased for $400, with 50% of the proceeds going to the Library. Several of the images are in print form for the very first time. Dr. Goldberg and his wife, Arlene, reside in Huntingdon Valley, PA.
Dr. Goldberg, retired vitreoretinal surgeon, is a self-taught artist. His most recognized images capture quiet, spiritual, uplifting moments. The artist’s works are in public and private collections, and also currently showing at the Art at Valley Lake Gallery in Horsham, PA.
His paintings will be featured in the exhibit “In a Relationship: Art, Science & Medicine” at the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, PA from February 8 to April 13, 2014. Some of the works selected for that show are on display now at the Huntingdon Valley Library as prints.
“Feeling” is seminal to the artist’s work, which at times contains surreal elements. Pared composition and chromatic unity add to feelings of peace, calm, reflection and harmony.
Dr. Goldberg relates “he feels a privileged observer and that art provides a unique opportunity for artist and viewer to open themselves to each other and even something larger than themselves.”
“One finds that he doesn’t just put down an image with paint, but tries to make it grow out of the paint,” wrote Victoria Donohoe, Review Philadelphia Inquirer, 2009.
