 Theresa Brown Gold has painted the faces of more than 100 people and is bringing a selection of her work to four stops on a one-day blitz through Bucks County.

She stood with her paintings outside the US Supreme Court on the day the Affordable Care Act was upheld, and demonstrated in front of the US Capitol for five months before that.

Gold is a staunch supporter of the health care overhaul, but she says she doesn’t want her work co-opted into a political message.

Unique Gift

"I am not here to get someone reelected. I didn’t start this project four years ago thinking, ‘How can I use this to get someone reelected?’ I started it because I wanted to know, and the project completely pulled me in," Gold says.

Portrait Oil Painting

By the same token, Gold says she wants her art to prompt a conversation about health care, and it’s all the better, to her, if that discussion informs people’s votes this fall.

She says after the election, she’ll be doing less demonstrating and more art – but acknowledges she’ll continue to document stories about health care.
