TCC Fine Art Gallery hosts exhibit by FAMU professor

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (January 8, 2014) – The Tallahassee Community College Fine Art Gallery is hosting Valerie S. Goodwin’s Art Quilt Maps exhibit from January 9 through February 13. To celebrate the opening of the exhibit, the gallery will feature a reception Thursday evening from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Goodwin is an associate professor of architecture at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University. As an artist, she creates fiber art inspired by realistic and abstract imagery of maps.

"As a child I loved maps, spending hours poring over them, intrigued by their beauty. Later, I noted how architects and other design professionals use ‘maps’ to communicate information to contractors, clients and the public. As a result, my work shows my passion for the language of architecture and cartography," said Goodwin.
 
Goodwin is an outstanding designer who incorporates her life experiences, her rich educational background, her immense talent and her gentle humanity into works of art that are not only beautiful but also speak to the heart and soul of her patrons. In Goodwin’s work, warm summers spent in rural Alabama with loving grandparents blend with architectural degrees from Yale and prestigious Washington University in St. Louis. She is an accomplished architect and professor in her chosen field who combines the needle and thread with traditional fine arts media to produce twenty-first century works of art.  She has woven many life experiences and passions into her unique art work.
 
The TCC Fine Art Gallery is open from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admission is free. The Fine Art Gallery is located in the Fine & Performing Arts Center at Tallahassee Community College.
