William Gould’s Cleveland: A Retrospective at BAYarts

Artist, Architect, Urban Designer, Renaissance man: William Gould has been making his mark on Cleveland architecture and the regional art scene for years. BAYarts is pleased to offer a look at the artist’s achievements and the vast, lasting impression he has made on greater Cleveland. Please join us for an opening reception from 7 to 9 pm Friday November 8, and for a gallery talk with William Gould at 7 pm November 13.

Gould is a hyphenated artist-painter, artist-architect, and artist-city planner with over 40 years experience in all three-disciplines. The artist-painter deals with everyday impressions of the urban and built environment in Northeast Ohio as he paints au plein-on the site – in watercolor and oils. His original watercolors evoke many emotions, and express impressions of the surrounding bridges, cement silos, and industrial factories.

Many paintings reflect imaginative creations of both future and historic cities; some images venture into the abstract, with strong Bauhaus/Kandinsky influences. Gould continues to integrate the three disciplines – Art, Architecture, and City Planning into his vision of the city. Through his watercolors and oils he continues to paint the industrial and by-gone scenes of Cleveland. Bill and his wife Harriet reside in an artist live/work studio in the Superior-St.Clair neighborhood. They are the founders of ArtSpace-Cleveland, whose mission is to assist artists seeking affordable live/work studio space in the city of Cleveland.
