COVID-19 has made showing art difficult. However, my painting "Mango Promenade" was given space in the NAWA Florida Chapter's 2021 exhibit in Miami Beach and awarded 2nd Prize; and my painting "Rodin's Caryatid" showed nicely on the walls of the Artists of Palm Beach County's 2021 'Starting Again' exhibit in West Palm Beach.
Two earlier paintings were exhibited during the months of February and March 2020: "Sugar Cane", a portrait in Oil on Linen, in Huntington, WV at Marshall University's School of Art and Design Carroll Gallery; and "The Watcher", a watercolor portrait showed at the National Association of Women Artists Gallery, in New York City.
Judy Kirtley was born and lived in Huntington, WV, until moving to New York City where she has lived for many years having careers in the theater and music worlds, including performances in opera and cabaret. Her attentions moved into the visual arts, where she maintained a professional photography studio for 30 years, and later began to realize her visual language without a camera. Drawing was her first step, which grew into a desire to see the colors in her drawings. While she loves drawing and watercolor, oil painting is her current passion.
Judy's training in painting in watercolor, oils, and drawing has been primarily at the Art Students League, where she studied with Peter Cox, Mary Beth McKenzie, Francis Cunningham, Costa Vavagiakis, and Henry Finkelstein, as well as independent teachers.
Judy's fine art photography and art works are in several private collections, and have been exhibited as shown on the 'Contact' page of this website.
