Featured Artist – Judy Brown
July 27 - September 6
Visit the library July 27th through September 6th to experience portraits of farm animals by local photographer Judy Brown. See these wonderful creatures in new ways. Marvel at their unique personalities and expressions. Admire their glorious colors.
Judy has gotten to know these rescue animals over a decade of visiting Weatherbury Farm in South Natick and Unity Farm Sanctuary in Sherborn. Many of the photographs on exhibit are from her book Weatherbury Farm, which received an honorable mention from Elizabeth Avedon’s list of best photography books of 2020: Round-up Part II. Judy’s photographs have been shown in several solo shows in Griffin Museum of Photography satellite galleries and in an MIT Architecture Department Tele-exhibit. Selections from her “Antique Skin,” “Elliott,” “Weatherbury Farm,” and “Unity Farm Sanctuary” portfolios have been selected for over four dozen juried exhibitions.
Judy follows a career as Professor of Physics at Wellesley College and Research Scientist at the MIT Media Lab by combining her long-time passions for animals and photography. She is particularly attracted to animal subjects – fur, hair, and feathers – for their subtle textures (often hidden from the naked eye) and for their beauty of form. She loves spending time with farm animals, getting to know them and their individual behavioral quirks. Judy is a Fellow in the Acoustical Society of America and, in the world of prestigious photography, a 2019 Critical Mass 200 Finalist. Having spent three years on a postdoctoral fellowship and several sabbaticals in Paris, she is also an enthusiastic member of the Bacon Library Francophile group.
