Rutland photographer holds first solo show
Sloping farm fields, the changing colors of autumn, and haunting black and white images of swamps and forests.
These are just a few of the photographs by Rutland resident Paul Goodwin that will be on display until the end of February. “Visions ~15 Images by Paul Goodwin” is a first for The Rutland Library, but thanks to Goodwin and his donation of, amongst other items, the molding used to hang the prints, other artists will be able to exhibit their work in the future.
Goodwin has been taking photographs since his teen years and considers himself a “serious amateur,” but that status could be changing.
“Up until the past year, I’ve always had the support of family and friends, but recently, I’ve received strong encouragement from working professionals in the area,” Goodwin said.
Goodwin travels throughout the U.S. and Canada to find photo subjects, primarily shooting landscapes and still lifes. To see the photographs included in “Visions” and find out the price for each, visit www.paulgoodwinimages.com. You can also follow the artist on Facebook.
The Rutland Library, 280 Main St. in Rutland, is open from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1- 8 p.m. Thursdays and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays.
