From the Council on Culture & Arts:
COCA’s 30 for 30 exhibition is on display now at the City Hall Gallery! We’d like to introduce you to Valerie Goodwin, one of the 30 participating artists.
An architect and FAMU Associate Professor, Valerie Goodwin began designing and making quilts as an outgrowth of her architectural background. Her work is inspired by elements such as city grids and mapping and has been included in numerous magazines such as American Craft, Fiber Arts, Quilting Art, and British Patchwork and Quilting. Her own book, Art Quilt Maps: Capture a Sense of Place with Fiber Collage, gives readers an inside look at her process. Goodwin’s art quilts have been exhibited in venues all over the county including at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY. Always an educator, she teaches workshops globally, as far away as Switzerland. She has been awarded an artist residency and many other accolades for her innovative creations.
