Barbara Goodbody has long been a leader in support of the arts in Maine. Her collection reflects her commitment and dedication. Featuring, some of the best makers in Maine, Santa Fe, Europe, and beyond, this compilation is idiosyncratic and optimistic, and mirrors her world philosophy. It is also curious and egalitarian. Barbara values the artist as much as the product, and the monetary value, or, the prestige of a piece is not what compels her to acquire it. It’s the content of the work that matters to her most. Many of these pieces were worth far less when they were attained years ago. That said, there is a staggering amount of important and valuable photographs in the assortment.
