The Geauga Arts Network Group (GANG) will be featuring professional artist and Ashtabula County native, Judy Campbell. Her earliest influences were scenes from her childhood farm life. She occupied her days sketching and painting this life. Soon art became the center of her educational focus. She earned a fine arts degree from Kent State University in graphic design and illustration.
As a fine arts student, one of her greatest influences was teacher, Joseph O’Sickey. He taught her to appreciate many artists and styles from Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and American Modernism. Her style has expanded to whimsical sketches and painting with mediums unexplored. Always searching and expanding her vision, her illustrative works have been collected by buyers in many areas of the US. Considered a Northeast Ohio artist, she has shown in galleries local to this region. Her work can be seen at her gallery/shop in the Ohio’s Historic Ashtabula Harbor, at Bridge Street Art Works.
This informal, educational program will be held Tuesday, April 17th, from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the Heinen’s Café, 402 Center St., Chardon, OH 44024. It is free and open to the public.
The Geauga Arts Network Group is an ad hoc group whose mission is to promote communication, collaboration, and cooperation across artistic disciplines for artists living and/or working in Geauga County. For further information, contact Nicky Bucur at 216-240-1501.
