Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden says
Valley House Gallery is pleased to present our second exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Mississippi artist Miles Cleveland Goodwin. Working in his open-air studio, Goodwin is deeply in touch with the rural landscape. His ruminative portrayals, full of earthy metaphor and soulful intuition, engage us in reciprocal story-telling in the spirit of the literature of the Deep South. Goodwin earned his BFA at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon, later returning to Mississippi - to the land and people he knows so well. About this body of work, Goodwin states:

"I live in a small town in central Mississippi, a place where the woods are swallowing homes like snakes eat eggs; travelling down the winding body of the highway. There is a sense of the old world, old ways of doing things - rough hands and bright souls. One is forced to be resourceful, to look at nature as a tool, a friend. My paintings, sculptures, and poetry have always reflected my surroundings - I try to listen instead of speak. I am very grateful to be showing my work to people, for without them I would go crazy."

Valley House Gallery is publishing a catalogue about Goodwin's work in conjunction with this exhibition.

The exhibition will be on view through February 11, 2017.
