Title: Sculptor, Teacher
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada, United States
Sharon Gainsburg, Sculptor and Teacher, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in sculpting and teaching art.
Ms. Gainburg’s foray into art first began as a hobby in her 20s, when she took a clay class at an art studio in Philadelphia. It soon became apparent through these classes that she had a talent and passion for the medium and continued to produce sculptures after taking a job working at a lab at the National Institutes of Health’s research hospital. It wasn’t until her husband was completing his residency in New York that someone saw her work and suggested she bring her talents to stone carving. After relocating to New Jersey, Ms. Gainsburg decided to spread her talents and skills and become an art instructor. Her work has been featured among many private collections such as Nabisco, NJ Power & Light, and USA Today across the United States, Europe, and South Africa, as well as many corporate collections and commissions. She was commissioned to design The Maxwell Finland Award for the National Foundation of Infectious Diseases which was used from 1988 to 2004.
Ms. Gainsburg has taught stone carving for more than four decades, and 20 of those years were at the Artist Way Workshops. She published an autobiography, “Worldbridger: A Sculpted Life,” in 2018. She has taken great pride in her career upon teaching people who believe they have no artistic talents. Throughout her career, Ms. Gainsburg has been an active community member and has raised funds for the Jewish Federation Deal, the ALS Association in Las Vegas. Furthermore, she has spoken at workshops, lecturers, and juried shows throughout her tenure as an artist. She served as a board member on the Memoria Project which erected a monument for New Jersey residents affected by 9/11. At her art studio, Ms. Gainsburg currently teaches workshops on intuitive painting, stone carving, and on discovering and recovering your creative self.
