Background in architecture & design

Fay Golson, Salida Colorado Artist

If the mind is allowed to wander into uncharted territory, the unexpected will happen. This is what occurs when the work I believe to be my best takes form. The media can be mixed as the piece dictates. The possibilities are endless and each effort a learning process. I feel that a design background of 25 years helps in approaching the work with a freshness of idea backed by technical skill. I hope the joy experienced in it's creation will be shared by the viewer.

Golson lives and works Central Colorado. Her artistic journey started early in life. She spent her childhood in the South, attended high school in Florida where she was active in art classes. She graduated from the School of Architecture at Auburn University with a degree in Interior Design. She then spent 25 years designing professional and commercial spaces in conjunction with various architectural firms and as an independent consultant. During that time, never losing touch with the art field, Golson also painted and allowed her design sense to influence her experimentation with other media. After moving to Colorado, she owned, operated and served as President of Articulation Gallery, Inc., an award-winning gallery representing over 30 national artists. She now spends her creative time in her studio in Salida, Colorado. Painting, photography, a blending of the two in manipulated photography and mixed media are the forms that most often describe the works. There is a continued effort on her part to stay informed as to new media and methods of expression that can be incorporated into the ones already in use.
