Meet Betty Gold
film director, Jason McMerty.
The California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks (CMATO) will host a private screening of "A Year With Betty Gold," a documentary feature film showcasing the life of the internationally renowned abstract sculptor and painter.
The screening takes place at CMATO alongside Gold's paintings and sculptures and will feature a Q&A with Gold and the film's director, Jason McMerty.
A former Miss Texas, Gold blazed a trail for female artists, emerging as a bona fide pioneer in the male-dominated field of large scale sculpture, with a body of work that spans more than 35 years. She has shown in more than 135 solo and group exhibitions and her work is found in both museums and prominent public and private art collections worldwide.
"A Year With Betty Gold" chronicles the 83 year-old artist's fascinating life story, from her early days as a beauty queen through the recent installations of her metal sculptures around the world.
Admission is free for CMATO members and $10 for non-members.
