CANCELLED: Mobile MakingTaught by Rachel Goodwin
About the Workshop
In order to minimize health and safety risks from COVID-19 to our patrons, the larger community, and Duke students, faculty, and staff, Duke University has adopted new policies on spring semester classes, residential life, travel, events, and campus visitors. In keeping with the university’s directives, we are cancelling DukeCreate workshops through April 20. Additional updates will be posted to arts.duke.edu.
About the Instructor
Rachel Goodwin builds paintings, collages and constructions from paint, wood and found materials. Her pieces create odd, disruptive, intense arrangements where form and color accumulate, stack and interact. They suggest a meditative and often playful visual language. Inspired by how we consume our world and dispose of it, her work resuscitates and transforms the old, broken, tortured objects we live with everyday.
In North Carolina, Goodwin’s work has been shown in Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Carrboro at Spectre Arts, LUMP, The Carrack, Durham Arts Council, Golden Belt’s Gallery 100, Duke University’s Brodhead Center and Rubenstein Art Center and The Scrap Exchange. She was on the painting crew for the Durham Civil Rights Mural in 2015. She also participated in The North Carolina Museum of Arts’s (NCMA) Monster Drawing Rally in 2016. In 2017, several of her latest pieces were selected for the King of Cockroaches show at Guest Room in Carrboro, NC. In the Spring of 2018, she participated in the Satellite Park Mural Project at Duke’s Arts Annex. In the Summer of 2019 she had a solo exhibition at Horse & Buggy Press Gallery in Durham.
