Award-winning sculptor Judy Fox will present a lecture titled, "Into Icons." Fox, who lives and works in New York City, is a 2006 fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and a 2009 fellow of the New York Foundation for the Arts.
The talk, which is part of the Hartford Art School's Auerbach Lecture Series, is free and open to the public. It will take place on Tuesday, October 26, at 2:15 p.m., in Wilde Auditorium in the Harry Jack Gray Center on the University of Hartford campus, 200 Bloomfield Ave., West Hartford.
Fox started showing in the East Village in 1985, pioneering contemporary figuration with her painted nude children. Since then she has participated in numerous private and public exhibitions around the US and Europe. She has received many awards, including two NEA grants and awards from the "Anonymous Was a Woman" Foundation and the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Most recent solo exhibitions have been at The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu; PPOW Gallery, New York; Ace Gallery, Beverly Hills; and Ropac Gallery, Paris.
As an undergraduate, she studied sculpture at Yale and Skowhegan, and then received a master's degree in art history and conservation from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University.
