On May 26th Judith Kahn's show "Art Song" will be opening at the Williams School of Commerce, Economics and Politics, Washington and Lee University, Huntley Hall, Lexington, Virginia. There will be a reception on Friday, May 26th from 5-7 p.m. with the artist giving a talk at 5:30 p.m. in room 221. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.

The work consists of etchings, monotypes, relief prints and lithographs which represents the artist's connection with magic moments in time and place. Ms. Kahn is both a painter and printmaker and has taught drawing, color and design at Montgomery College, Rockville, Maryland since 1975. Her work is included in public and private permanent collections in the U.S., Africa, and Asia. The show runs through September 2006.

BACKGROUND

University of Wisconsin, Madison; Roosevelt University, Chicago, B. A. in Art.
University of Maryland, Graduate Fellow, M. A. in Painting.

The inspiration for my paintings and prints has always been drawn from the visual world. They represent a personal involvement with figure and landscape. My travel to and interaction with people in many exotic places where I have lived and worked has lead to a deep interest in the myths and legends associated with their cultures.
