Valley House Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Miles Cleveland Goodwin's exhibition "Horseshoe Bend."
In Miles Cleveland Goodwin’s soulful compositions, he narrates the story of his life. Goodwin responds to his environment, the lives of common folk living around him, and the mysteries of life. Through his work, we experience the inherent ambiguities and provocations felt when confronting life as it is. Goodwin’s paintings metaphorically speak to the fundamental nature of life, in all of its heartbreak, wonderment, and everyday beauty.
About the exhibition title "Horseshoe Bend," Miles Cleveland Goodwin says:
"I have walked along the Toccoa River underneath the old iron bridge for four seasons. I have seen as it has seen: the bend in the river, the beaver scampering away from the hellish howls of my relentless hound, who is fixed like a worm to wet earth. Inspirations are echoed from mountain top to mountain top, and slowly fall through the air down into my grasp."
Miles Cleveland Goodwin was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, and raised in the South. He earned his BFA at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. He lives and works in Georgia. This is his third exhibition at Valley House Gallery.
