Born in Montreal in 1923, Betty Goodwin worked for nearly 50 years in a variety of media – painting, drawing, collage, printmaking and sculpture. Often associated with themes of loss, absence and memory, her works are poignant and connect deeply with both the public and critics. In 1968, Goodwin attended Yves Gaucher’s etching class at Sir George Williams University (now Concordia University). This decision proved immensely significant for her career, as printmaking allowed her to reconnect to her artistic beginnings and brought her national and international recognition. In the words of art historian and curator Rosemarie L. Tovell, “over the last three decades, Goodwin has created one of the most significant and original bodies of prints produced by any Canadian artist.”
