The Art Gallery of Golden is hosting a new exhibit of landscape paintings created by artist Gale Berndt.

This is the first time her work has been on display in Golden for more than 15 years.

“I first fell in love with the mountains and the Golden area in 1972 and returned the following year to pain the landscape,” said Berndt. “Many thanks to friends and the people of Golden for supporting me as an artist for more than 40 years.”

Berndt is still drawn to Golden, even though she spends much of her time in Minnesota caring for her family.

The current exhibit, titled Mountain Waters, will be at the gallery from now until Jan. 15, and showcases the self-taught artist’s love of water.

“I’m fascinated by water, and always drawn to it. The vibrant colours, the brilliant blues, and the clarity in the rivers have captivated this year once again,” she said. “Painting is truly my passion. I enjoy ‘en plein aire,’ and experiencing the scene all day. I use a variety of mediums; oil, acrylic, and watercolour, as each has its unique qualities.”
