Gil Walsh

 

 

Working primarily in Palm Beach, Pennsylvania, and Martha’s Vineyard, Gil’s exquisite book comes to life with rooms showing that color can be enjoyed with gusto, whether in pretty pastels or bold, bright hues. From beach houses in the Florida Keys, to sky-scraping apartments in Palm Beach, historic landmark buildings such as Fallingwater and the Duquesne Club in Pennsylvania, and a cozy cottage on Martha’s Vineyard, Gil has applied her artistic eye and techniques to a wide variety of interiors and period styles.

 

Gil Walsh is an active member in the American Society of Interior Designers and a member of the Society of Classical Architecture. Her work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Palm Beach Magazine, Florida Design, Jupiter Magazine, Luxe, Beautiful Homes, Florida Travel and Lifestyle, New England Homes and Vineyard Style to name a few. In 2017 Gil designed a room for the 2017 Kip’s Bay Decorator Show House in New York.

 

Known for her extraordinary eye for detail in design, color and fabrics, Gil Walsh has led over $200 million in interior design work over 40 years. She grew up in homes filled with classic design and style and realized early in life that interior design was her calling as it enabled her to integrate her keen fashion sense, with her deep interest in art history and architecture.

Announces

Art Synergy

Jan. 23-28, 2014

Lee Ann Lester, Organizer of ArtPalmBeach Contemporary Art Fair, announced today the launch of the first “Art Synergy” Art Week during the upcoming ArtPalmBeach art fair.  ART SYNERGY is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community”, explained Craig McInnis, West Palm Beach Art District Coordinator.

Rolando Barrero, Director of ActivistArtistA Gallery and Developer of Boynton Beach Arts District; “Since opening my gallery, in a run-down industrial park in 2012, my dream was to develop the area into an art district and cultural center.  It has taken only 2 years to do so. Now that it has been cleaned up, repainted, and nationally branded – it’s ready to be presented to the arts world. Lee Ann Lester is vital to this effort and it’s with much gratitude that I thank her for accepting our proposal to participate under Palm Beach’s flagship art exposition: ART PALM BEACH.”
Lee Ann Lester, Founder and Organizer of ArtPalmBeach, says,“Palm Beach County has a great legacy in supporting the arts and is home to many of Florida’s leading art and cultural institutions. Art Synergy will create a new bridge for winter residents and ArtPalmBeach visitors to explore this cultural legacy and create an annual destination to enjoy Palm Beach County Art Week events.”

In the capacity of Medical Director of that Hospice she was asked to give her expertise on AIDS to the Presidential Commission in Washington. Following her retirement she combined medicine with her other childhood career target, painting, by attending The National Academy of Design.
Dr. Siegel has become an award-winning artist recognized nationally for her series of people living with AIDS, Survivors of AIDS, The Changing Faces of AIDS (Seniors), Breast Cancer Survivors, The Homeless, and the Elderly.

featured in a one woman exhibition “Holocaust Survivors and Liberators” at The Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Her current passion is to bring art into the medical field as an educational tool and a forum for healing. In this new field of art in medicine she has been  instrumental in creating a program at U of Miami in Florida and Columbia Medical Center in NY City to bring artists to work with patients and also to teach medical students to see in a different way. She is a member of the Advisory Council of  Columbia Medical Center, New York City and the School of Nursing Drexel University, Philadelphia.
