Goodman, who now resides in St. Petersburg, studied Graphic Design and had a long and illustrious career in Design and Illustration. He also studied Printmaking at the London College of Printing (University of the Arts London).
Goodman’s work, graphic prints and paintings, reverberate with urban motifs. The work in the exhibit features architecture, autos and urban sites. His artwork has been exhibited and sold internationally. Goodman’s creations have been featured in magazines and published in educational books on printmaking. His artwork has been commissioned by a diverse list of high-profile clients that include Urban Outfitters, Paperchase and Das Auto Museum Volkswagen, Germany.
Additionally, Goodman’s artwork is held in both public and private collections including the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and The China Printmaking Museum. Marketing for Center Place said, “Internationally known artist, Barry Goodman, entered our Square’s Off Contemporary National Competition last year with his work. Barry now lives in St. Petersburg, so that opened up this opportunity to bring his work to Center Place Fine Arts for November and December. You will not want to miss the opportunity to enjoy Barry’s work.”
Rodriguez added, “Part of our mission at Center Place Fine Arts is to have fine arts exhibits, like Barry’s, to engage young, inspiring artists and bring culture to our community. The arts open up our minds to new and exciting places and help us to be well rounded citizens.”
