Artistic talent seems to run in the Goodman Family.
It starts with the patriarch of the family, Michael Goodman. Born and raised in Richmond, Goodman is a founding partner at the law firm of Goodman Allen Donnelly.
While practicing law, Michael managed to find time to create his own comic strip, “Wingtips” that followed the antics of a hapless judge. Although his comic strip was acquired by a national syndicate, it never became his full-time gig. Feeling compelled to keep his day job to care for his growing family, Michael stuck with practicing law and focusing on his creative side when time allowed.
Joined by two of his children, Laura and Daniel, who seem to have followed in their dad’s creative footsteps, the trio’s artwork will be on display at the Weinstein JCC’s Sara D. November Gallery March 9 – April 28.
Inherited Quirks: The Art of Being a Goodman will feature the absurdly superb painting of Michael, Daniel and Laura, America’s foremost bi-coastal father-son-daughter artist impersonators.
Bursting with color and off-color humor—and featuring elegantly-dressed animals, smooth shapes by the stack and fiery females in foliage—there’s something for everyone (especially if you’re a Goodman) in this eclectic mix of imaginative wit and downright family fun!
The community is invited to a gallery opening and reception sponsored by Hirschler on Thursday, March 9 at 7 p.m. at the Weinstein JCC.
RSVP at weinsteinjcc.org.
The Weinstein JCC is supported, in part, by a generous annual contribution and programming grants from the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond.
