In her artist statement, printmaker Elizabeth Goddard mentions that she is interested in beauty as it relates to peace, stating, “Art that is beautiful brings a great sense of serenity and joy to those who witness it; these people share their sense of peace with their communities and, by extension, with the world.”

The Newport, Rhode Island-based artist is showcasing her work at three current and upcoming exhibitions. She always seems involved in a multifaceted collection of projects and goals.

A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Goddard entered broadcasting after receiving a Masters of Science from Syracuse University, working in a variety of capacities and winning a New England Emmy Award as associate producer of “Miller’s Court” for WCVB-TV in Boston.

She went on to become the executive director of the Newport Art Museum from 2008-2015, during which time she received a fully funded competitive scholarship to Harvard Business School to study strategic planning in non-profit management. Goddard was extremely well organized to be able to complete her Harvard course work and serve as museum director of Newport Art Museum — all while creating artwork and maintaining Studio Goddard Partridge, a print studio she founded with Regina Partridge 19 years ago in a historic building in the Exchange Street Loft Complex in Pawtucket, R.I.
