Regional Voices: Judith Glantzman
Gallery 400 Lecture Room
400 South Peoria Street
New York-based painter Judith Glantzman (born 1956) creates vividly highlighted canvases of faces, hands, and feet captured in individual moments of emotional expression or action. The imagery, built up in thick layers of oil paint through a process of addition and subtraction, elicits emotional responses. “A cacophony of voices desired to be heard, these paintings can be seen as the inside of my head made visible,” she has said. Glantzman is distinguished particularly by her early shows in the East Village art scene of the 1980s. She has exhibited in many New York venues including DiLaurenti Gallery, The Fashion Institute of Technology, CDS Gallery, Mokotoff Gallery, Hal Broom Gallery, Civilian Warfare Gallery, Fashion Moda Gallery, and MoMA PS1, as well as internationally at Saide Bronfman Center, Montreal, Canada; Anna Friebe Gallery, Cologne, Germany; America Haus, Berlin; and Galerie Engstrom, Stockholm. She received a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design where she currently teaches.
