Join UUCP on Wednesday, June 14th at 7:00 PM for our “Artists on their Art” Series. We are pleased to have two very accomplished artists for our series: Judith Bellini and Miriam Stern.

Judith Bellini: Teaneck artist has studied with New York abstract expressionist artists Gerry Samuels and Bruce Dorfman at  the Art Center of Northern New Jersey and the Art Students League in New York City.  Ms Bellini holds a Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Hawaii and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Hunter College. She has exhibited in 18 group shows and has had ten solo shows in New Jersey galleries. In 2004 she was awarded first prize in the Bergen County Senior competition for professional oil painting. In 2005 Ms. Bellini received the highest achievement award for the Bergen County Senior show. In April 2017, Ms.Bellini received the honor of having four landscape paintings selected by Hackensack University Medical Center to be permanently installed in the new wing of the hospital.

Artist’s Statement: “For many years my painting style was one of abstract expressionism utilizing gesture and color to produce mood and sensation.  At present I combine this love of gesture with a newly found connection to nature. Through the use of color and bold sweeps, the paintings evoke images of favorite childhood haunts, both real and imaginary.  My work transports the viewer to fields, mountains, wildflower gardens tropical islands and far away fantasy lands.”

Miriam Stern: The recently published artist book, “Miriam Stern”, is a retrospective spanning the past 40 years of her artistic production. Showing slides of her art and explaining her motivation, thinking, and process, Miriam will share her unique perspective of what it means to be an artist. The book reveals her sustained reflections on Judaism, feminism, family and the connections between them.

There will be time after for questions, discussion and some refreshments. We look forward to seeing you!
