The Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County opens its 2018-19 Bassett Gallery season with an exhibition by local artist, Dot Goodwin. Her exhibition, entitled “Life With HeART,” opens Thursday, Aug. 16. An opening reception, catered by Ashley’s and with a cash bar, will be held in the Bassett Gallery from 5:30-7 p.m. The exhibit will continue weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Sept.14. The Bassett Gallery is sponsored by Kornegay Funeral Home. 

Dot Goodwin cites her hands as her favorite tools; she savors the sensation of carving surfaces, or carefully building multi-level images for casting. Her sense of symmetry and attention to detail are features that stand out in her work, lending themselves to the creation of iconic images and traditional symbols of institutions and South Carolina. Dot Goodwin often incorporates Native American imagery in her personal pieces, feeling a deep connection to the people and their spiritual practices. Images of horses and wings are recurring icons throughout her work. 

Dot is the owner of the Artist Attic, located at 930 Broad St., Camden. Read more about Dot and her work at

Goodwin said about her craft, “I always felt a desire to be inspired, called to something that brought forth the ability to create something with my hands. Being lost and found at the same time in the creating of a piece. Heart and soul. Then there is the reality of hearing the words ‘you’ll never make it as an artist.’ At the time I said to myself, ‘not my belief.’ I am creating and living my dreams -- are you?”
