STUDIO GALLERY EVENT
Since Judith's passing in March of this year, I have been thinking of
ways to share the significant collection of her work that she left
behind, much of which has not previously been viewed by the public.
With that in mind, I hosted a special open Gallery Event at Judith's
Studio during this beautiful time of year in our mountain setting as a
tribute to Judith's artistic talent, creativity, and kindness.
The event was even more special because three of Judith's close friends,
influenced by her in different ways, graciously agreed to
be part of this special show.
Green - Pottery - Watkinsville, GA
Christine Kisoba - Ceramic Sculpture - Brevard, NC
Whitworth - Paintings - Brevard, NC
In addition, there was ceramic works made by the amazing Korean
Seungho Yang, who joined Judith to put on an unforgettable workshop
at Judith's studio in 2015.
It was an incredible evening for me as so many people showed their love
and appreciation for Judith's talent and legacy.
