Lanning Gallery
“Experience of Nature: The Art of Judith Monroe”
July 1st – July 10th, 2016
Opening Reception July 1st (5:00 pm – 8:00 pm)
Judith-Monroe-JDM30-Evening-Glow-(CathedralRock)Lanning Gallery in Sedona, Arizona opens a new exhibition to showcase the unique techniques of artist Judith Monroe as she creates mixed media landscapes that literally bring nature onto her canvas. Judith Monroe worked as a photographer then a graphic artist before taking a couple of years off to have her children. But the distance from her artistic energy finally, in no uncertain terms, called her back. Monroe returned to the darkroom and, feeling that color films weren’t conveying what she felt and remembered from each scene of nature she strove to present, she began hand-coloring her photos, capturing the feelings of each place and the emotions she had felt there. The traditional hand-coloring process led Judith Monroe to add visual layers to her photographs right in the darkroom with photograms (placing objects directly onto the surface of photographic paper then exposing it to light), she began mixing media onto the photographs using watercolors and pencils. This led to her current technique of coating a black and white print with an acrylic medium which, as it dries, pulls the ink out of the paper. The images on this transparent film are now the base of her mixed media paintings. For more information please visit the Lanning Gallery.
