Gimme Shelter

Lori Goodman’s installation and JoAnne Berke’s milestones


Lori Goodman’s new installation centers on two large, contoured forms that protrude from the wall. These vaguely tent-like structures are spaced so that they almost touch at their shared boundary. Their rugged surfaces are fashioned from handmade, hand-dyed paper dressed over flexible armatures, the material Goodman has long favored for her constructions. Scale lends these objects a rangy, ungainly look. They burgeon in unexpected ways, barging beyond the wall and into adjacent space.

Whatever the vehicle, this kind of sharing is an important part of how we connect with others and to the world at large.

MARSHLANDS, an interpretation

Finding the angular side of water

I once went for a hike in Eureka’s Elk River Wildlife Area with Lori Goodman. I’ve driven past that area on Broadway at the end of Hilfiker Lane numerous times and never knew that there was anything behind those industrial-looking buildings. Lori took me over six miles through grassy marshes.
