The Life and Art of W. A. Goodwin: Virtual exhibit

By Lindsay Advocate

A new virtual exhibition by the Olde Gaol Museum curated by Ian McKechnie opens July 6.

The virtual exhibition features original Goodwin oil, pencil and water colour paintings and sketches along with photographs documenting the life of one of Lindsay’s past painters.

To learn more about and view this exhibit, it can be found here.

As an artist, Goodwin left his legacy not just with his Cherry Tree Lodge journal, but also through pencil, pastel, oil and watercolour of lakes and landscapes within the Kawartha Lakes region.

Goodwin’s art has been exhibited at the museum in the past and navigating the changing dynamics caused by COVID-19, the Olde Gaol Museum would like community members to continue to engage with our region’s history in a digital and timeless way.

The museum would like to thank Virtual Museums of Canada for their primary financial support that made this exhibit possible as well as the Goodwin family, Jane and Dana Still, for their invaluable contributions of artwork, photographs and items from W. A. Goodwin’s past.
