“I am an artist (daycare provider, art teacher,  . . . , mother and wife)” says printmaker Lynda Goldberg. “Art has always been an important part of my life. Art allows me to share my love and wonder of nature with others. Monotype printing is my focus and specialty.”

Lynda Goldberg has exhibited in the United States in both solo and group shows, and received numerous awards. Her work is in many corporate and private collections in the U.S. and abroad. She wrote a chapter “Monotype Nature Printing With A Press” for the Nature Printing Society’s THE ART OF PRINTING FROM NATURE book which came out in March 2011.”

Goldberg is a member of the Monotype Guild of New England, Nature Printing Society, Weston Arts and Crafts Association, and several Arts Associations: North Shore, Rockport, Newton, and Brickbottom (Somerville). She teaches classes in monotype printing at the New Art Center in Newton, and has short workshops from time to time in various locations. Her work has been featured in dozens of solo shows in New England and beyond.


Artist Statement

My monotypes (one-of-a-kind prints on paper) focus on nature and my fascination with it. I start with an idea or feeling, which is expressed in textures and colors using natural and found objects. I am a tactile person, always touching things and feeling their texture. I see an item’s potential by how it might appear after color and pressure have been applied. I use leaves, grasses, ferns, seaweed, eggshells, as well as manmade found and/or recycled objects. Each print is unique and the result of an adventure.

My goal is to transmit my enthusiasm for the printmaking process and its creativeness to others.

About the Mary Jo Rines Gallery At First Parish

The Gallery At First Parish opened September 17, 2000.

On September 13, 2011, the Standing Committee voted to name the Gallery in honor of its founder,
Mary Jo Rines, who died on September 4, 2011. A special exhibit of Mary Jo’s work was on display
in the Gallery from September 20 – September 30, 2011.

Its purpose, as described by the founders:

The mission of The Gallery At First Parish is to add another dimension
to the spiritual fabric of our lives by exhibiting the work of visual artists
who seek to contribute to a deeper understanding of the human condition.

The Gallery is intended to be a service to the parish, the artist and the wider community.

It is open to the public without charge 9 AM – 4 PM weekdays, and 9 AM – 12:30 PM Sundays.
Interested parties may also call the Church Office (781-893-7798) for other possible viewing times.

Exhibits are listed in the First Parish Event Calendar.
