Atlanta artist Mike Goettee is in love with the American Southwest, so much so that he is being honored with a show – Technicolor Coyote – at the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville that runs through March 13. It would make for a good road trip “outside the loop.”
Goettee’s paintings are part of the Booth’s permanent collection. His work also hangs in the Columbus Museum of Art, the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Cologne, Germany and in many private collections. He paints at his home studio in Avondale Estates where he is active in the Avondale Arts Alliance and hosts monthly “Artists Coffee.” INtown talked with Goettee about his inspiration and how he works. He also shares several pieces that will be in the show.
