The dynamics of memory and the visual and tactile impressions of her materials are at the heart of Judith Salmon’s installations and assemblages. The St. Petersburg-based artist was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1952. She studied painting and printmaking at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, Chicago and had her first solo exhibition at the Olympia International Art Center, Kingston in 1977. Over the years she has received several awards for painting and recognition for her printmaking. Her relief print “Unmasking the Goddess” was selected in 1995 for exhibition in Beijing by the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Active in her community and committed to creating social good, Salmon teaches art to adults and children with disabilities throughout the state.
