Last weekend, Hell's Kitchen Flea Market welcomed many new vendors and artisans. This included a demonstration from local mosaic artist Judy Negron who recently won a visual arts grant from The Hell's Kitchen Foundation. Judy showed her mosaic techniques to flea market customers on Sunday from 12-2PM.
In fact, bases for Judy’s sculptures were purchased from Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market. For example, the bases of the works “Fish out of Water, ($1600) and the head bust “She”, ($2000) were found at the flea market. The bases for “The Walkers” ($1800 for the set or $400 each) are also some examples.
These works of art, created by Judy Negron, can be seen at the Judite Gallery on 660 Tenth Avenue between 46th and 47th. The show is on until this Saturday. The hours are 11-6.
