Things You Never Knew About Your Library


Tim J. Gold: On display at the Curt Bessette Art Gallery

Tim J. Gold is the latest featured artist in the Curt Bessette Art Gallery at the Main Library in Burlington through October 17.

Timothy J. Gold attended Edgecliff College, achieving a BA in Art Education, and NKU where he received an MA in Art Education. He is a juried member of the Kentucky Arts Council. His paintings have shown locally, regionally, and nationally. His commissioned work can be found throughout the country. Tim enjoys mentoring new artists in his position as Art Works Manager at Reality Tuesday Coffee House. Several art organizations have called upon his expertise to judge local art shows. While he is more comfortable using acrylic paint to create bold flat colors, the past several years Tim has experimented with oils.

Tim’s artist statement explains his need to paint:

I create because I must . . .

I create because of a long-neglected dream . . .

I create because of a deep-rooted drive . . .

I create because I am obsessed . . . and hope I can endure!

I create because I must!
