Organic + Tattoo: Sculptures by Debbie Goldman is a selection of the dozens of artworks she has made since 2019. All of her sculptures begin as found objects, wooden roots and tree branches carefully recovered from shorelines which are then cleaned and ornamented with hand-carved marks or paint.

The artist is generously donating all 50 artworks in this exhibition so they can be sold, with all monies collected to benefit the University’s Art and Design department.

An elegant reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, December 16th beginning at 4 p.m. Live music and refreshments will accompany the artworks, with time for conversation with the artist.

This exhibition will be held in the McCutchan Art Center/Pace galleries, located in the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center from December 12 through December 19, 2022.
