FLORENCE -- Donna Goodman, coordinator of FMU’s art education program, delivered the commencement address, “Things to Make in Life Other than Money” in June at Mullins High School.
Also, her work has been accepted in several national and regional exhibitions, including the Southern Visions Photography Competition, sponsored by the York County Museum of Art, a competition of North and South Carolina photographers.
Goodman’s work, “A Soul Remembering My Good Friend,” was chosen as second place in the alternative division and for the traveling show of the competition. Other nationally juried exhibitions for which her work was chosen are the 12th National Juried Art Exhibition at the South Cobb Arts Alliance in Atlanta, and Computer Generated Art at the Appleton Art Museum in Appleton, Wis.
She also participated in two exhibitions, The Splendor of the Box Invitational at the University of South Carolina’s McKissick Museum, and Art for the Millennium at The Upstairs Gallery - A Contemporary Artspace in Tryon, N.C. In the USC’s McKissick Museum show, artists were chosen to design and build small boxes that showcased each artist’s unique interpretation of the “box” theme.
Goodman, the Peter D. Hyman Professor of Art and professor of art and education, received her Ph.D. from the University of Alabama. She has been employed at FMU since 1987.
