Over the past 35 years, Goodwin has been associated with three co-op galleries in Marblehead and has just joined ARTWORKS in Chocorua Village, NH. She was President of the MWVArts, and Events Facilitator & Fundraising Chair for the hanging, jurying, and house committees at the Marblehead Arts Association. Goodwin has also been an active exhibiting member of the Lynn Arts and Swampscott Arts Association for many years, where she still coordinates Friday Painter’s Plein Air throughout the summer and facilitates hanging and off-site exhibits year round for the MWVArts.
Relocating to the mountains after a lifetime of painting at the shore has been a fascinating journey for Goodwin due to the changing light that reacts differently in each location. For Goodwin, “It’s all about the patterns of light and shadow.” She paints almost exclusively in the plein air style during the winter — often in fingerless gloves — on the tailgate with the heat running just to catch a scene. Goodwin’s work can be found at the MWVArts New Gallery, The Met Coffeehouse and Gallery, Memorial Hospital, Darby Field Inn, Vintage Frameworks, Artworks in the Valley, and the Glickman Library at the University of Southern Maine. Her oils, watercolors, pastels, graphite and conte drawings can be found in collections in Europe, the Caribbean, Central America, and across the US.
Goodwin is a mother of five, two of whom are stepchildren, and grandmother of sixteen, ranging from age 38 to three-months-old. She lives in Silver Lake, NH in a 200-year-old farmhouse where her studio is located. To learn more about the artist, please visit www.house-portraits.com.
