Painting of a man holding on to bars
Maud Gatewood (1934-2004) grew up in the rural isolation of Caswell County in the 1930s and '40s, and even there she found a critical eye and vast curiosity that served her well through a visual life. She recieved art education at UNC-Greensboro and went on to get her Master's degree in painting at Ohio State University. During her life she earned many art awards such as the Fulbright Grant, through which she studied art history and painting in Salzburg, Austria. She has had many of her pieces exhibited in museums in North Carolina and Alabama.
