“Radiance from Within” at Mary Martin Gallery

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mary Martin Gallery Presents “Radiance from Within”
Mary Martin Gallery is pleased to announce that Judy Fuller will be in attendance as the featured artist for their show “Radiance from Within”. The public is invited to the opening reception on the evening of March 18th from 5 pm to 9 pm.
Judy is a native of San Diego, California, and attended the University of Miami.
She began studying art through workshops and individual study, and relocating to Miami offered new artistic subjects with the expansive wetlands in the Florida Everglades. She continued to paint while finishing her undergraduate and subsequent juris doctor degree, beginning her professional career as a General Magistrate in Miami, and raising her family. She had the wonderful privilege of painting with, and being personally mentored by, the late A.E. “Beanie” Backus at his studio in Ft. Pierce, Florida. She now devotes herself full time to the continual pursuit of her artistic passion.
As an Ojibwe American Indian, Judy’s art portrays that special love of nature.
Judy says of her work, “To describe my passion for art as totally consuming is an incredible understatement. I am drawn to the tonal aesthetic of American painters of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Capturing the spirit of the scene is premier to my development of a landscape wetlands painting. Each painting incorporates layers of translucent and transparent glazes. My search for interesting subject matter involves hours of outdoor observation, sketching and plein air painting oil at those special times of day – including moonlight and campfires. Many of the scenes are only assessable by boat which adds another dimension of rapidity to the artistic challenge”. She is challenged to reduce to a flat surface the vast beauty of nature. The result is a radiance from within that draws the viewer into the scene. The work takes the breath away.
“Radiance from Within” will be on display through the end of March. Call ahead to reserve pieces.
