Plymouth, N.H. – The Department of Art at Plymouth State University will present guest artist C. M. Judge at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Draper and Maynard Building on North Main Street.
Judge, director of the Moongate Studio in Fitchburg, Mass., is an intermedia artist who realizes work by utilizing a variety of materials, techniques and technologies. Her work celebrates multifaceted connections by creating spaces that receive and engage body, mind and spirit.
Trained as a traditional painter, Judge found that her paintings became sculptures and her sculptures became installations. Now her installations have come full circle as drawings, which in turn become paintings and videos.
Judge holds a M.S. in visual studies from MIT and a B.A. in drawing and painting from the University of Lowell, Mass. and is a recipient of a NEA Challenge America grant. She also studied at the Studio Art Centre Internationale in Florence, Italy.
Judge’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan. She has completed many projects during a 19-year collaboration with Japanese video artist, Atsushi Ogata, two multimedia works with Paula Rendino Zaentz and an international video collage, FemLink, co-curated with French video artist Véronique Sapin, featuring 133 women video artists from 62 countries.
A visiting artist listed on the New Hampshire Council for the Arts and the Massachusetts Cultural Council rosters, Judge has taught courses in both two- and three-dimensional art disciplines at museums, colleges and universities in the New England region. Her educational outreach has centered on collaborative art making that has resulted in more than 80 large-scale public art projects. Student artists are encouraged to investigate creative process as it relates to their life experiences.
The visiting artist initiative expands the Department of Art tradition of bringing studio artists and graphic designers to PSU during the academic year, and for extended summer workshops at both the graduate and undergraduate level.
