Beth Wold Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement Beth Wold is a fine art photographer specializing in landscape and wildlife photography. Although Beth is a North Dakota native and resident, she spent 17 years abroad in Africa where her passion for wild places and wild things was ignited. Inspired by line and form as well as negative space, her wildlife photographs are modern and celebrate the individuality and grace of her subjects. Beth’s landscapes tend toward intimate views of the landscape and are often abstract in form. Her work has been collected and displayed on four continents, and she was recently named "North Dakota Artist of the Year" by Twin Cities Tosca Magazine. Beth has had several gallery shows, and was recently chosen as "Mayor's Choice" artist. Several photographs have been given awards in juried art competitions, and published in books and magazines. Beth earned a Bachelors of Arts from the University of North Dakota.
