- The Tallahassee Community College (Fla.) Fine Art Gallery is hosting Valerie S. Goodwin’s art quilt maps exhibit. Goodwin is an associate professor of architecture at Florida A&M University. As an artist, she creates fiber art inspired by realistic and abstract imagery of maps. Goodwin is an outstanding designer who incorporates her life experiences, her rich educational background, her immense talent and her gentle humanity into works of art that are not only beautiful but also speak to the heart and soul of her patrons. In Goodwin’s work, warm summers spent in rural Alabama with loving grandparents blend with architectural degrees from Yale and Washington University. She is an accomplished architect and professor who combines the needle and thread with traditional media to produce 21st Century works of art.
