Stay tuned for the announcement of our upcoming exhibition coming Summer of 2018!
Wayne Goodman is a Beaumont native and self-taught artist. He began his artistic career around 2012 and has since created a prolific body of mixed media works on paper. In 2017, Goodman was the recipient of a 1st place award from the Beaumont Art League during their Black History Month exhibition. He is a master plumber by trade, disabled vet and former book store owner in Beaumont. His interest in the written narrative is visualized through his artwork, revealing characters and stories focusing on the African diaspora, African American and Cajun culture, folklore, history and traditions. Often inspired by poetry, the words of Langston Hughes frequently accompany many of Goodman’s pieces, adding narrative to the artist’s vibrant compositions.
