Dina Gustin Baker, Artist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in painting.
Delving into the field of art from a young age, Ms. Baker was 5 years old when she first discovered the joy of painting. Attending the Albert C. Barnes Foundation from 1942 to 1946, she had the opportunity to attend the Art Students League in New York City in 1945, a four year scholarship dedicated to the arts. She subsequently attended Hayter Atelier 17, a two year scholarship program, followed by an Edward MacDowell Fellowship in 1959. After obtaining hands-on experience in the field, she attended the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in 1986. Earlier in her career, she completed coursework at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
Exhibiting 18 solo exhibitions and 20 group exhibitions throughout her career, Ms. Baker has traveled across the United States and abroad to showcase her work, including in New York, Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Utah, and the Federal Republic of Germany. She has permanent collections in several museums and universities, including the Boca Raton Museum, the Bergen Museum, Columbia University, New York University, and Rutgers University, the State University of New Jersey.
Renowned for her unique style of painting, Ms. Baker’s art is characterized by conceptual and abstract imagery filled with dynamic structure, expressive color, and emotion. Self-described as hosting an introverted style of painting, Ms. Baker’s artwork is diverse in nature with some work expressing geometric elements and other work captivated by kinetic energy with active momentum. She has always channeled her feelings through her work as a route of discovery, tending to her own emotions while applying paint to the canvas.
A leader in the art industry, Ms. Baker maintains affiliation with several organizations, including the National Association of Women Artists and the Palm Beach County Cultural Council. She has been listed in Who’s Who of American Artists, as well as the National Museum of Women in the Artists. In recognition of her exceptional achievements, she has accrued several grants and scholarships, including the Gold Award from the Parrish Art Museum in 1965. In addition, she was the recipient of a graduate fellowship at the Albert C. Barnes Foundation, which she considers to be one of the highlights of her career.
