When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Jane Harrison

You Are Invited! FEBRUARY 2, 2014 1-4 pm Jude Harzer Thesis Exhibit

A belated and abundant New Year to all!

On Sunday , February 2nd, my graduate thesis exhibit opens at the Ocean County Artist's Guild in Island Heights, NJ. This concludes the requirements necessary for me to successfully complete my Masters of Fine Arts degree in Painting from the  Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA. This is the culmination of a 3 year commitment , one that I chose not necessarily to acquire a degree but to immerse myself in a creative and learning community dedicated toward rediscovering and establishing my own art practice.

It took a great deal of persistence, balance and encouragement to actually complete this program... and so I did, despite the whole lot of life that happened in the midst of it all. I finished my academic work just two weeks prior to the passing of my mother and a week after I celebrated my 50th birthday. Yes, life goes on and I am moving forward and through it all.

And so I celebrate the start of this New Year with my exhibit entitled, "White Rabbit, White Rabbit: The Rituals of Paint. Progeny and Play." If on February 2. 2014 you are available between 1-4 pm, I'd love to share my work with you and simply say hello and thank you!

Hope to see you there!

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
― Neil Gaiman
