Thru September 16: Full Sun: American Women Artists Illumniate the Haggin Museum

As part of American Women Artists' mission to have 25 museum shows in 25 years they put out a call for entry asking artists to become inspired by a painting from their collection. My painting was inspired by 16th Century Dutch artist  Verboekhoven's "Highland Monarch"

I gave it a feminist twist and created my “Highland Matriarch.” Read about how this painting was inspired here.

A Historic Announcement

Judy Takács Elected as Member of Historic Salmagundi Club in New York City

This is so special because I basically grew up in art hearing about the Salmagundi Club in New York from my Portrait Teacher at the Cleveland Institute of Art, José Cintron. He spoke of it with a reverence for the artistic giants of portraiture who have also been members since it began in 1871. William Merrit Chase, Norman Rockwell, Childe Hassam, N.C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle…even Louis Comfort Tiffany. The  Salmagundi Club positioned itself at that lovely crossroads between narrative, representational art and illustration, at a time when that was going out of favor, they carried the torch.
