As President of The Ulster Society of Women Artists (USWA), Judith is proud to announce their upcoming 64th Annual Exhibition, at the historic Crumlin Road Gaol, Belfast, 3rd to 12th August 2021. This will also be online but is the first time the society will have had a physical exhibition since 2019, since last year’s venue had to be cancelled. Entry is free, and some of the members will be doing small demos throughout the duration of the show. This is a large venue with plenty of space to roam around and browse the artwork. For further details, keep an eye out on www.uswa.co.uk and social media.
About the artist:
Working in a variety of media, including watercolours, acrylics, coloured pencils and printmaking, with one medium often feeding off another, Judith’s art is largely based around the human figure. Her work often features scenes of everyday life: a walk with the dog, someone lost in a good book, scenes captured in sketchbooks, committed to memory, or conjured in dreams and imagination. Having lived in Chile for almost a decade, a search for identity and belonging is also a common theme throughout. Her love of pattern, vintage and retro is evident in many of her pieces.
She exhibits regularly in several galleries in Northern Ireland, as well as annually with the Ulster Society of Women Artists, which she joined in 2016, winning the Lily Davies New Member Award. The artist is also a member and regular exhibitor with the UKCPS, (United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society). Other noteworthy shows include the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, the Society of Women Artists, both in the Mall Galleries, London, the Royal Watercolour Society’s CWC, and the Royal Ulster Academy’s 2018 and 2014 annual exhibitions in Belfast, (shortlisted 2015 and 2016). This year she also had a piece selected for The 209th exhibition of The Royal Institute for Painters in Watercolour, also at The Mall Galleries. Her work has been sold to private collectors worldwide.
The artist’s studio/gallery, The BlackSheep, which she shares with her husband Hernán Farías, of HFPhotography, offers viewing by appointment as well as some workshops, special exhibitions and events throughout the year. She also has a small collection of work from other Irish artists for sale there. Follow the gallery on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with what’s on. (See Contact).
Some smaller original pieces and a selection of giclée prints, art cards and painted stones, are also for sale in her online Etsy shop (see Store). To request a price on a particular piece, or information regarding the galleries who regularly exhibit her work, please contact the artist, or see Galleries.
