Meet the Artist – Judith Shaw

April 18, 1pm – 4pm

The Wooden Cow is beginning a new Meet the Artist series to give our consigning artists the chance to speak to gallery visitors about their artwork. These events will be on the Third Sunday of each month, from 1 pm to 4 pm. Our first Meet the Artist will be April 18 with the multitalented Judith Shaw. Judith, a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, creates mixed media pieces in wonderful bright colors, just perfect to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather. Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet Judith and see more of her artwork.

Spirit Tree by Judith Shaw

Judith Shaw has been interested in myth, culture and mystical studies all her life.

From a college paper on Beauty and the Beast to a much later series of paintings on Beauty and the Beast…

From a student painting of circles to her current fascination with the interlocking circles of sacred geometry…

From reading When God Was A Woman in the early 70’s to her ongoing visual exploration of the role of the Goddess in our modern world…

From her very first oil painting of a tree to her most current painting, The Mother Tree— her early influences of Jackson Pollack’s abandon, and Van Gogh’s emotionality are evident.

Originally from New Orleans, she has traveled in Mexico, Central America, China, Europe and Greece and lived in Mexico and Greece. The passion and bright colors of many of these places have affected her palette and style.

Judith has also studied dance, primarily Haitian dance and bellydance. Dance is an important expression of her belief in body and soul as one whole. Much of her work reflects the movement and rhythm of dance.

Judith makes art, dances with abandon and experiences the world through travel and study.
