Landscape by Cynthia Guild Kling

 Guild Kling




Starksboro VT

Painting and the arts have always been a part of my life. Usually where I am at the time influences the subject of my work. Today it is Starksboro; in the past New Hampshire, New Mexico and Sweden have given me inspiration. I did little in Kuwait due to stress of job and time challenges.


Landscapes are a form of visual history. Many of the places I have painted have changed: fields are “developed,” trees die and are cut down, buildings are lost or moved, and roads are built or widened. My work tells the story of “time when.”


I’ve shown my work in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire with the Laconia Art Groups and at Gilford Old Home Day Artists’ Exhibit as well as shows in my own studio.


While at Lyndon State College in 1974-75, I had a retrospective show as part of my degree requirements as a life experience. In Sweden, I showed at Enskede at Skarpnack and in Santa Fe took part in an exhibit at the United Church of Christ, Santa Fe. Deerleap Books has shown my work as well as the Starksboro Public Library. The 1991 State Bicentennial Celebration in Starksboro had a show of local artisans that I participated in as well as the Starksboro Village Meeting House Old Home Day Exhibitions.


I’ve taught the course “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” here in the States as well as in Sweden.
