PRESS RELEASE: Alison Goodwin at Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin

“For the past 22 years I have been painting in a style that has evolved and explored a variety of themes and subjects, but is consistent in its use of geometric patterns, bold color and skewed perspectives,” stated Montpelier artist Alison Goodwin.

Three Lefts Make a Right is the title of Alison’s show currently hanging in the lobby art gallery at Central Vermont Medical Center, where it will continue through the end of August. “The paintings in this show represent a variety of the work I have done. I frequently visited the themes of rows of houses in a city, the divinity of daily labor, creative spaces, and still lifes. In this show I have collected paintings that represent variations of my work over the past twenty years.”

Last year Alison began to carve out time in her practice to re-explore the core vocabulary of her work. She decided to put the paint and brushes away for awhile and turned to charcoal. Some of the resulting work is also included in this exhibit.

“CVMC is pleased to be able to offer gallery space to area artists,” noted CVMC President and CEO Judy Tarr. “We also feel that we are providing a small oasis celebrating the joy of creativity for patients and visitors, a break from their immediate health care concerns.”
