Home Is Where the Art Is
For nearly 30 years, Fay Gold operated one of the nation’s leading contemporary art galleries, due to her groundbreaking exhibitions of artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cindy Sherman, Robert Rauschenberg, Alex Katz, Keith Haring, Irving Penn, Andres Serrano, and Robert Mapplethorpe. She is a visionary well known for pioneering contemporary art in Atlanta and her private collection in her condo in Buckhead is not to be missed.
Highlights from the collection include:
Deborah Butterfield, Horst P. Horst, Robert Mapplethorpe, Vik Muniz, Herb Ritts, Sandy Skoglund, Mike & Doug Starn, Boaz Vaadia, as well as beautiful modern furniture.
Renowned for her impeccable taste, Gold now works as a private art consultant offering expert advice and consulting services to collectors around the country. She was named one of the 50 people who made Atlanta in Atlanta Magazine’s 50th anniversary issue and was vice president of the International Women’s Forum, Georgia Chapter. In March 2010 Fay was the commencement speaker at the University of Georgia, Lamar Dodd School of Art. In 2009, Atlanta Contemporary organized a tribute in appreciation of Fay’s pioneering vision and profound dedication to contemporary art.
