About the Artist - Cindy Gilberti
Cindy Gilberti is an artist from western Pennsylvania. Inspired by nature and the outdoors, she strives to make the ordinary extraordinary by interpreting her world using color and gesture in an expressionistic style. She enjoys painting light and values in her compositions through observation and plein air and is equally comfortable painting in watercolor and pastels. Like most other artists, she is continually experimenting with new mediums to see how they can be incorporated into her designs.
Cindy exhibits her artwork around the tri-state area and is currently the Vice President of the Pittsburgh Pastel Artist League. She is also a member of the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society, Cranberry Artists Network, McMurray Art League and the West Hills Art League. Cindy has also served as a juror for various art exhibitions. Her involvement with regional artists through these endeavors inspired her to open her own art studio and gallery in Coraopolis; Gilberti Fine Art Studio & Gallery and strives to promote art and artists throughout our community.
She has studied with numerous internationally recognized artists including Marla Baggetta, Christine Swan, Terri Ford, Jacob Aguiar, Sterling Edwards, Susan Harrison-Tustain, Frank Webb, Tom McNickle, Jeannie McGuire and more.
You will find Cindy painting in her studio and teaching various art classes.
I love the outdoors so naturally I am drawn to painting flowers and landscapes. When light sparkles on a leaf or flower petal, glistens across a river or peaks out from behind pink skies after a rainstorm; I’m captivated by its beauty. Colors change depending upon the time of day or with the seasons and I find this exciting. It is an everchanging image of light, shadows and color. I try to capture these moments in my paintings with pigment, brushes and sometimes even my fingers to create realistic scenes with a touch of impressionism.
I often find inspiration while kayaking the rivers and lakes of Western Pennsylvania and hiking through the Allegheny National Forest. Floating around a bend and catching the light reflecting off the water or seeing light peak through the pines is my inspiration. These moments leave an imprint on my soul and make me feel like I am one with nature.
My intention through my paintings is to remind people to slow down, embrace and cherish nature and to take a moment to reflect upon the beauty that surrounds us.
