Feature Artist Bio
By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by contemporary American landscape painter Judy
Gelfert (born 1972 in Texas, USA).
Currently a resident of Arlington, Texas, Judy grew up on her family’s ranch in Bowie, Texas, where she discovered her joy of drawing and painting at a young age. Her interest in art led her to earn two years of studio art credits at the University of Texas at Austin while majoring in history and German. After graduation, she became a flight attendant, which gave her the opportunity to spend countless hours in the world’s finest art museums sketching and studying paintings by the masters and experimenting in oils on her days off. In 2002, she began showing her work, which was quickly recognized with honors such as 1st Place in the National Society of Artists’ 22nd National Juried Competition, and acceptances in the 2005, 2006, and 2016 Oil Painters of America National Juried Competitions.
Judy’s paintings reflect her ever-enthusiastic attention to design and light in everyday surroundings, be it the landscape, urban scene, interior, or figure. Painting in her preferred medium of oils, Judy aims to capture the essence and feel of a scene, leaving detail to the viewer’s imagination.
Now a busy mother of 2 children, Judy still paints every chance she gets, and finds endless inspiration in the rugged landscapes of Texas, her native state. She’s currently represented by Marta Stafford Fine Art in Marble Falls, Texas, and The Good Art Company in Fredericksburg, Texas.
