It consists of her professional and personal correspondence materials, sketchbooks, loose sketches and artwork, artifacts, newspaper clippings, reviews, photographs, and materials related to her various exhibitions.

Collection Historical Note

Maud Florance Gatewood was a widely recognized Southeastern artist and painter. Her most familiar work is known to feature natural landscapes and botanicals as well as figurative designs that depict various aspects of the human experience. Gatewood's artwork currently resides in several public and private collections, including the Weatherspoon Art Museum.

Gatewood was born on January 8, 1934 and raised in Yanceyville, North Carolina. In 1954, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina (now The University of North Carolina at Greensboro) and, in 1955, a Master's Degree from Ohio State University.

In 1963, Gatewood was awarded a Fulbright scholarship with which she studied in Austria under Oskar Kokoschka. Also among her awards and recognitions, she received the 1984 North Carolina Award in Fine Arts, the American Academy of Arts and Letters painting award in 1972, and an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree from UNCG in 1999.

In addition to painting, Gatewood was also a very active member of her community, elected as the first female member of the Caswell County Board of Commissioners with which she served for several years. She became a faculty member at UNC Charlotte in 1964 and a founding head of the university's Art Department. She passed away November 8, 2004 in Chapel Hill at the age of 70.
