During regular hours through July 15, the Dover Town Library will be showing equine portraits by Judy Brown.
Following a career as Professor of Physics at Wellesley College and Research Scientist at the MIT Media Lab, Judy Brown has combined her longtime passions for animals and photography. She is particularly interested in form, texture, and lighting in images and is attracted to subjects for their simplicity and beauty of form. Her "Elliott" portfolio of a spirited pony in his stall has been given a number of solo shows, including two in Griffin Museum satellite galleries and an MIT Architecture Department Tele-exhibit. Selections from her "Antique Skin" and "Elliott" portfolios, as well as other images, have been selected for over a dozen juried exhibitions including Asbury University's "The Horse: A Juried Exhibit," Texas Photographic Society's Members Only Show, and the SE Center for Photography's "The Contemporary Nude." Most recently, she has spent much of her time photographing the animals on a nearby farm in South Natick, consummating a childhood passion for farms and animals while growing up in rural Texas.
In the last decade, Brown has taken several courses in the Certificate Program at Rhode Island School of Design and in New England School of Photography's evening program. She has also taken several studio art courses in drawing and design at Wellesley College. Workshops include Equine Photography in Southern France with Tony Stromberg, Maine Media's "A Certain Alchemy" with Keith Carter, and Atelier 26 with Meg Birnbaum at the Griffin Museum of Photography.
