Miles Cleveland Goodwin: The Maze

Valley House Gallery is pleased to present our second exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Mississippi artist Miles Cleveland Goodwin, along with the publication of a catalogue illustrating his recent work. Working in his open-air studio, Miles is deeply in touch with the rural landscape. His ruminative portrayals, full of earthy metaphor and soulful intuition, engage us in reciprocal storytelling embodying the spirit of Southern literature. Goodwin earned his BFA at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon, later returning to Mississippi.

I live in a small town in central Mississippi. I live here because there is a sense of the old world, old ways of doing things—rough hands and bright souls. When I drive to town every morning for three shots of espresso on ice, I see people with cemeteries on the side of their yards, those plastic flowers all around. People who are not racially divided, but together because of a long history of ups and downs. A place where the woods are swallowing homes like snakes eat eggs; they travel down the winding body of the highway roads. It is all so beautiful and true.
—M.C. Goodwin

The opening reception will be Saturday, January 14, 2017, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
