Edward Goldman: American Regionalism to Op Art

A Denver Artist Discovered: The art of Edward S. Goldman, who spent more than sixty years of his adult life as an adopted Denverite after the Second World War, is being surveyed in a retrospective exhibition at the David Cook Galleries in the Mile High City.  A well-read individual with diverse interests that included business, art, politics, history and sports, Goldman did not have a full-time art career with numerous solo and group shows, gallery representation and press reviews.  Nevertheless, with single-minded dedication he pursued and perfected his craft over several decades in the privacy of his home basement studio, producing a noteworthy body of paintings in both representational and abstract styles most of which are being shown publicly for the first time.
