Art on Main Street -Guest Artist - Judy Whitehead Mixed Media Artist- Friday July 10, 6-9pm

Judy Whitehead is a North Carolina based Mixed Media Artist, currently working in fiber and paint. She started sewing at the age of 7, and has not put down her needle and thread since. She is currently self-employed as a longarm quilter (Goneaway Quilting, Cleveland, NC) and spends her evenings and weekends pursuing her passion for art.
Judy’s works are based on her deep love and respect for nature, color, and mythology. As her work has evolved, she has grown into an artist who bridges both the traditional quilt world and the fiber art world. Currently Judy’s work can be seen at Southern Spirit Gallery in Salisbury, NC.

Past exhibitions of her work include:
“The Journal Quilt Project 2006 and 2007”, International Quilt Festival, Houston, TX
“Reflections of Nature”, solo show, 2009, Mitchell Community College, Statesville, NC
“The Art of Cloth”, group show, 2009, Lincoln Cultural Center, Lincolnton, NC

Pieces currently travelling:
“Connections”, The Voice That Is Great Within exhibit, Fiberarts Connection of Southern California.
