Friday, May 4th 2018 - Thursday, May 31th 2018

Imagine a quiet night in Paris. A cozy corner, a lavish ballroom, an elaborate train, a glass case brimming with colorful french pattiserie...all framed in gold. Join us as Goodwin demonstrates the Art of Fine Dining through her new exquisite pieces. The exhibition will open with an art reception at the gallery at 58 Broad Street in historic downtown Charleston on Friday, May 4th from 5:00 until 8:00 pm. Refreshments and lite bites will be served.

A passionate devotee of capturing spontaneous romanticism, Lindsay Goodwin is a treasured discovery among the next generation of fine artists. Lindsay creates gradations of tonal balance on her canvases; equilibriums evident when the viewer recognizes the artful juxtapositions of warms and cools.  Her fascination for capturing the historical moment of interiors from Paris to Boston reflects our own human desire for romanticism in our lives and for bringing the elegance of historical splendor into our homes.

Born and raised in Topanga, California, Lindsay had her initial fine art training at O'Neill's Fine Arts in Malibu.  Following instruction under Katie O’Neill, Lindsay enrolled at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.  On her road to a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Lindsay gained invaluable artistic knowledge as a student of Craig Nelson.  Lindsay has incorporated Nelson’s utilization of rapid oil studies into her own methodology.  She believes that by setting a time limit to her canvas, she sharpens nearly every aspect of her work, including perspective, tonality, and most importantly, atmosphere. During her final semester at the Academy of Art University, Lindsay was chosen as one of the top emerging artists among her graduating class.
