This episode of podmissum features Judy Glantzman ’74 who lives and works in New York City. She has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad. A 1978 graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Judy was active in the East Village art scene in the 1980s. After receiving a number of grant and awards, including the Anonymous Was a Woman Foundation Grant in 1997 and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship in 2001, Judy held a thirty-year retrospective of her work in 2009 with Dactyl Foundation. For Judy the artistic process reveals as well as obfuscates—she has defined art as a dialogue that goes back and forth, a “paradoxical dynamic” like ying and yang—a spiritual principle that she enjoys lending to her work.
The podcast took place at Judy's most recent show in October 2015, at Betty Cuningham Gallery on Manhattan's Lower East Side. In the course of the conversation three of the works in her show are discussed. The first is rather large with sixteen separate framed and mounted works of acrylic and paper hung next to each other to create a group of separated panels. Each panel is approximately one foot square and may have a representational image, such as a depiction of the earth, or may be nearly abstract with few recognizable images. The other works that are discussed are groups of small portraits. Some of the portraits are Judy’s interpretations of works by other artists, such as Winslow Homer, while other portraits depict the actor Peter Falk, perhaps best known for his role as television’s Columbo.
