February Meeting

Our monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 11 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Art Center Sarasota. The doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for those who wish to socialize before the meeting begins. We will have Show and Tell and an ATC Swap with the theme of hearts.

Elizabeth Goodwill, Education Director at Art Center Sarasota will be discussing and showing dresses from the Art Center’s iconcept unconventional fashion show at the Feb 11 Surface Design Meeting.  The meeting will be held at the Art Center Sarasota rather than Waldemere Fire House.  Iconcept has been one of Art Center Sarasota’s fundraising events for more than 10 years now. Elizabeth who has been a participating artist in the show for the last 7 years, will discuss how the artists create works of wearable art, both fashion and fantasy, not designed with fabric, but by being innovative and using repurposed or recycled items.  Dressed from previous years will be displayed for up close viewing.   

Elizabeth received an MFA in Printmaking and Book Arts from New Mexico State University in 2007 and a BFA from Ohio State University in Printmaking in 2004. 

She considers herself a craftsperson, an artist and a teacher, in no specific order. Elizabeth is also a trained bookmaker, papermaker, printmaker and a mixed media and fiber sculptor. Her work is playful and thoughtful, bright and soft, natural and bound. She loves to dabble in any mediums she can. Her work has been exhibited around the country and internationally since 1999 and pieces are part of private collections around the world.

Elizabeth is currently the Education Director at Art Center Sarasota where She designs and creates the adult and youth art education programing. She also has  been teaching art to students of various ages since before college.
