At The Gate

Paintings by Georgeanne Jud
Jud Exhibit at the Marion Herrick Room Gallery, Wendell Free Library
Illustration: At the Gate


The Wendell Library is pleased to present “At the Gate”, the first one-person exhibition of paintings by Georgeanne Jud of Lawton, Pennsylvania. Twelve medium size paintings, six watercolors and seven oils, fill the gallery space with swirling, bright colors. The bold energy of the work is palpable. The title of the show refers to the artist entering her seventh decade, but the energy expressed here suggests one much, much younger.
