Current Exhibitions:

Quilts are coming off the beds and going up on the walls as fine art. More and more gallery art exhibitions are featuring art quilts alongside oil and acrylic paintings, sculptures, etc. As art quilts are gaining in acceptance and popularity, their value as art has been increasing as well. Fine art collectors are branching out into textiles as well and adding art quilts to their collections. These exhibition opportunities make it easy for collectors to see the artwork in person and purchase from the artist while patronizing their local galleries. As I am notified of jury results, I will be posting upcoming exhibitions here. For previous exhibition information featuring textile artist Jean M. Judd's artworks, go to the Recent Exhibitions page to see exhibition history for individual artworks.

The Stillwater Art Guild Gallery in Stillwater, Minnesota will be hosting an invitational exhibition entitled “Still Water”. This exhibition was conceived by textile artist Jean M. Judd of Cushing, Wisconsin in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the St. Croix River being part of the National Scenic Riverway system in the United States. She selected eight artists to participate along with her in this exciting exhibition to run August 1 – 30, 2018. Artwork Ms. Judd has selected for inclusion in the exhibit includes her Contaminated Water Series, which will feature ten large scale works, including her newest addition to the series, Reflections, which has not been exhibited previously.
