About the Event
Judith's art incorporates her love of fabric and collage and her training as a painter and printmaker. She will take us on a journey from her early works to her current work where she integrates her life experiences as an artist living both in New York City and in the Adirondack Mountains in New York State. The subject matter is deeply internalized. She often uses random thoughts and symbols which are sometimes connected and sometimes seemingly unconnected. She will explain her painting and printing process including surface techniques, materials and tools.
Judith was born and grew up in New York City where she was exposed to museums and art exhibitions from an early age. She was fortunate to attend the LaGuardia School of the Arts where she received a great foundation for her major in art in college. She spent early post college life pursuing a career in commercial art and textile design. The next step was printmaking and painting and then creating large stuffed fiber pieces. And the rest is history.
Her work has been exhibited nationally including the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC, American Craft Museum in New York City, Whistler House Museum of Art in Lowell, MA, Thirteen Moons Gallery in Santa Fe, NM plus several others. Many publications feature her work including Portfolio, Quilt National, Fabric Art Gallery and Fiberarts Design Book. She is also the recipient of three Individual Artist Grants in New York State.
