Judy Puckett

Judy Arline Puckett is the April 2009 Digital Color Artist of the Month. Judy is a digital artist and photographer residing in Louisiana. She is also a creative writer, poet and a lover of jazz and blues music.

Her subject is often herself. Her work is a self reflection. Judy believes each of us should find the inner beauty within ourselves.

Art exhibits, mostly in the March Pasadena Art Night (PAN)
The work of Edward Biberman, a famous California artist, and some Israeli-Californian artists, including a multimedia video installation of a meteor shower are on exhibit at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park. Biberman taught at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena which coincidentally is in the PAN.

The Norton Simon is a reliable good part of any PAN. Curators' comments about the Don Bachardy portrait of Norton Simon and the Matisse love poems exhibit were on podcasts which were available in advance.

The highlight of PAN was the Pasadena Museum of California Art. The electron microscopy exhibit was beautiful, It included a photo of a human embryonic stem cell. The Data + Art: Science and Art in the Age of Information exhibit was amazing. It included:

1. Little robots who sought out bright lights and left marks on paper as they traveled.
2. A large image of a dollar bill which had been assembled by an artist/supervisor who portioned it into tiny pieces. He subcontracted with 10,000 internet users, each of whom copied one piece. They only knew their own portion and were unaware of the larger project. Each person was paid a penny, so the total labor cost was $100.
3. A video/laser installation which scanned viewers and created beautiful and lingering images on large screens.

A Symphony rehearsal was open to the public. There was also live music at the Jazz Institute and the One Colorado stage. Also showcasing their exhibits at PAN were the Pacific Asia Museum, the Armory, the Pasadena Museum of History, Pasadena City College and the Shumei Arts Council.
