Excerpts from the catalog, Somewhere Between, by Katherine French:

“The collaged paper that Judith Brassard Brown incorporates into her painting perfectly supports an emotional narrative – one that describes the process of getting from one place to another. Images might contain photographs, scraps of old letters and cancelled dates from rail tickets or passports, yet meaning does not depend on specific content. By using random material collected from family and friends, Brown lets us know that serendipity is part of the human condition. ‘Life can be messy, painful and unexpected,’ she observes,‘but so can art.’”

“Educated at Boston University’s School for the Arts, where she received a BFA in 1974 and MFA in 1978, Judith Brassard Brown is currently a painting professor at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA where she also co-chairs the Foundation Program. As an acclaimed arts educator, Brown established Summer Studios in Viterbo, Italy and served as executive director for ten years. After Summer Studios in Viterbo became part of Montserrat College of Art’s Study Abroad Program, Brown continued her involvement, returning to Italy most summers to teach and paint.”
