Olivia Rutigliano

Judith Hudson's Untitled, 2017.

Guest artist Judith Hudson will discuss her art, her process, her personal and professional history during The Victor D'Amico Institute of Art's Artists Speak on Wednesday, June 13 at 6 p.m. The series' first talk of the season will take place at The Art Barge and also cover current topics related to her most recent work. The informal conversation will also include artist Lucy Winston.

"We are pleased to continue the Artists Speak series of intimate talks with distinguished artists begun in the early 80s. Our inaugural talk this season is with Judith Hudson who will engage in a lively dialogue on art and social issues with fellow artist Lucy Winton," said Esperanza Leon, administrative coordinator at The Art Barge.

Hudson was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey and studied at the University of Colorado where she received a BA in Fine Arts. She then went on to receive her MFA from the California College of Art, UC Berkeley. A National Endowment for the Arts grant recipient, she has shown her artwork in group and solo shows in New York City, including MoMA PS1, The New Museum, The Bruce High Quality Foundation, Marlborough Gallery, and The Drawing Center, as well as locally at Ille Arts in Amagansett, The Fireplace Project in East Hampton, Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill and Tripoli Gallery in Southampton. In 2018, she was included in The Artist Curated Collection: Toward Abstraction, curated by Bryan Hunt at Guild Hall in East Hampton. Hudson lives and work in Manhattan and Amagansett.

Winston, born in Boston and now based in Wainscott, focuses on intimate scale art inspired by romantic children's book illustrations, Romanticist paintings and comics. Together, her and Hudson share interests, ideas, aesthetics so to allow a dialogue on art and social issues.

"Hudson will also discuss her current solo show in Southampton at Tripoli Gallery, titled Under the Covers, how she arrived at this material, content, and place in her work," added Leon.

The series of talks began in 1983 and was organized by Howard Kanovitz. It ran through the 80s and included artists like Jimmy Ernst, Howard Kanovitz, Elaine de Kooning, Larry Rivers, and Syd Solomon. It was revived in 2013 presenting numerous notable artists such as Christo, Eric Fischl, William King, Miriam Shapiro, James Rosenquist, April Gornik Laurie Anderson, and David Salle.

The series has also been filmed by LTV, the East Hampton public access television company.
