Lindsay Goodwin: "Meet Me in Paris"

Friday, November 6th 2015 - Monday, November 30th 2015

Opening with coincide with the Art Walk on November 6 from 5-8pm.

They say there is no city more romantic than Paris in the fall. The leaves gently falling in the Tuileries, lovers holding hands on the Pont de Neuf bridge, the cups of hot wine warming visitors on the steps of Sacré-Coeur… How we all wish we could take a vacation to the City of Light right now. Fortunately, we do not have to travel to get our fix of that “je ne sais quoi,” Lindsay Goodwin brings it right to Charleston with her French interior scenes. Ella W. Richardson Fine Art is pleased to present “Meet Me in Paris,” a new exhibition that will have your heart all aflutter for our favorite French city just in time for the holidays. 

Internationally acclaimed, Goodwin was born and raised in Topanga, California and began studying classical methods of painting at O’Neill’s Fine Art Studio in Malibu. She attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where she became a student of Craig Nelson, another artist Richardson represents. Painting alla prima, or wet-on-wet, Goodwin has a tight deadline to finish works. “I tend to over-explain things in my life, but never in my paintings. That time limit gives me more confidence in my work, and I make every move count,” Goodwin explains. Named as one of the “Top 21 Artists under 31” by Southwest Art magazine, Goodwin has been featured in Plein Air magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, and most recently in American Art Collector’s May 2015 issue.

Images for Goodwin’s detailed paintings are sourced from throughout France, but Paris is fresh on her mind. On her most recent trip abroad, she lived just a few blocks from the Champs-Élysées for four months, gleaning enough inspiration to last until her return. Goodwin’s new works show some of her favorite Parisian destinations, from cozy cafés to dazzling ballrooms. What sets her work apart is not her eye for decadence, but her ability to always make a pristine setting inviting. 

"Meet Me in Paris" opens Friday, November 6 from 5-8pm and corresponds with the November Art Walk. The exhibition will run until November 30.
