The Art:

Goodnough, a respected sculptor and painter, has not restricted his work to sculptor materials and canvas. In turning to print making Goodnough brings the same aesthetic abilities characteristic to his painting style and sculpture work. In experimenting and extending his range of expression Goodnough has kept integrity and freshness in his art.
