William Gould is nationally recognized professional in architecture, urban design and land use planning. Mr. Gould has a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Michigan and Master degree in Urban Planning from Cranbrook Academy. He is currently principal-in-charge of Urban Renewal Planning; including Slum & Blight Evaluations for the city of Lorain, Ohio. He founded Artspace, an organization making downtown spaces affordable studios for artists to live/work. His studios are located within the 1400 Boxtop Building in Midtown where he lives with his wife Harriet Gould. This unique studio location is home to Tastebuds Restaurant, Terra Vista Ceramic Studios, Zygote Press and many other individual visual artists.
The series of works on display at AIV 5700 Gallery are reflections of the region's cityscapes. An artist working in the city, Gould captures familiar scenes and sites while injecting color and vibrancy into his pieces. Many of the works reflect neighborhoods, churches and unique viewpoints rich in community from within sections of Cleveland. He paints on canvas and watercolors of urban and natural places that depict beauty and balance. His goal is to observe these places and record them for further study and evaluation.

"For many years, I have used watercolors to record my impressions of places in Cleveland," explained Gould. "I believe each region has a unique character that needs to be depicted. What is unique to our region is my quest. I often wander throughout Cleveland, accompanied by paper, camera and watercolors, to paint important or exciting aesthetic experiences of visual beauty. My eyes, hands and mind convey that certain spirit of a place on each painting."

Please join us Friday May 18th to meet the artist
from 6 - 8 pm with snacks and drinks
