Miles Cleveland Goodwin at Valley House Gallery

All art is autobiographical, Fellini declared. For Miles Cleveland Goodwin, those snippets of life in rural Mississippi make up his artwork in the current solo exhibition at Value House Gallery and Sculpture Garden. As a city of concrete and glass, Dallas hasn’t been at the forefront of persevering vanishing America. But the imageries of Goodwin, if nostalgic by nature, are less about the old South than a reflection of his reality. The relentless process of ruin and abandonment, in an eerie way, is sort of romantic and comforting.
