FAR welcomes visiting artist Valerie S. Goodwin this July. Goodwin, an award winning fiber artist and Associate Professor of Architecture at Florida A & M University, creates densely collaged quilts that focus on geometrical relationships, patterns, and ordering principles used in architecture. While at FAR, Goodwin will explore the boundaries of the quilt form with her project “Mapping Time and Place: Path/Place-Line/Shape – Figure/Ground – Light/Shadow – Positive/Negative” a layered fiber art map documenting the displacement of an African-American Village that once occupied the current site of Central Park.
For more information on the artist please visit her website at: quiltsbyvalerie.com. Her new book, “Art Quilt Maps — Capturing a Sense of Place: A Visual Guide” is now available for pre-order.
