The Hell's Kitchen community was deeply saddened this week to learn of the passing of noted local artist and Hell's Kitchen Visual Arts Foundation grant winner Judy Negron. Judy, a mosaic artist, etcher, and painter, was a bright light in the local arts community.
Judy exhibited her work locally, nationally and internationally. Some of her most notable international exhibitions included shows at la Main D'Or, Paris; Assisi, Italy; Cadaques, Spain, and the Museum of Modern Art in Wales. In the U.S., she had memorable showings at the NYU Gallery, Kathryn Markel Gallery, Prince Street Invitational, and The Jadite Gallery in Hell's Kitchen. Her work is included in The Museum of Modern Art collection, the collection of Deepak Chopra, La Sirene restaurant, Taureau Restaurant, The Wine Escape, and many other private collections. A commissioned piece, Two Cats, can be seen on the facade of 447 West 44th Street.
Most recently, her one-person show, "Umbrian Dogs and Other Tails" was on exhibition at The Jadite Gallery during the month of September.
Judy was awarded a Hell's Kitchen Foundation Visual Arts Grant earlier this year. With her grant award, she said she planned to continue her work in mosaics, painting, and etchings and also to explore The Printmaking Workshop in Hell's Kitchen. She delighted visitors to the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market this fall with a live demonstration of her mosaic-making.
Judy will be truly missed. We extend our sincere condolences to her family and her many friends in the community.
