GTL Exhibition, May-June 2018: Dennis Goodwin

Local artist Dennis Goodwin is exhibiting his artwork in the Gannett-Tripp Library lobby, May 3 - June 12, 2018. Goodwin is a familiar figure to the campus community, as he has worked in Dining Services for the past eight years. Originally from Brooklyn, he moved to the Elmira area in 1973. Mostly self-taught, he remembers his art career beginning when his mother gave him a sketch pad after finding him drawing on the walls. Later he studied with New York City artist Francisco Ciccio Poblet, who told him not to stagnate, but to try different mediums. Over time, he expanded his skills beyond pencil and paper to include watercolor, color pencil, pastel, acrylic and acrylic on glass. Poblet also encouraged Goodwin to try abstraction, but he has always been more interested in depicting representations of black history, the Civil War, slavery, and other historical events. In recognition and respect for his teacher, Goodwin has included two artworks created by Poblet in this exhibition.

Since living in Elmira, Goodwin has exhibited his work at the Community Arts of Elmira and E.O.P. He has shown his work at Elmira's annual Juneteenth Celebration in Ernie Davis Park. Juneteenth is the oldest known African American celebration in the United States. It was created to foster an appreciation for freedom, knowledge and culture. Having its roots grounded in the abolition of slavery, it continues to be a nationally recognized event in communities throughout the United States.
