Greavu to speak at ONU artist lecture series
Judith Greavu, a sculptor, will be the featured speaker at the Ohio Northern University artist lecture series that kicks-off in the Wilson Art Center (Room 115) on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 1 p.m.
The ONU artist series was established this year to bring to campus noteworthy artists and designers whose work focuses on the environment. The series will conclude on Earth Day, April 22, 2007, with a special program to be held at the Wilson Art Center.
The event is free and open to the public. For additional information, call the department of art at 419-772-2160 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
As a child growing up in a rural, coastal area of Florida, the environment has had a great influence on Greavu’s work. In 2006, Judy was awarded an artist's residency in the Florida Everglades. "I was excited to be returning home, to natural, unspoiled Florida," she says. But, on the contrary. "I spent the month of April living in the Everglades learning about spoiled habitats and endangered animals. I did create work, and am excited to be able to show some of the images and talk about my experiences in the Everglades.”
Greavu is currently working in rural Dola, Ohio. A retired ONU associate professor in art, Judy received her B.S. in art education in 1963 from Ball State University, and then completed her M.F.A. in painting from Bowling Green State University in 1967. She has traveled the world and has given workshops and lectures all over the United States. Her exhibition record includes solo shows, group exhibitions and juried shows.
