VSA North 4th Arts Center

As with any avant-garde artist, Audrey Chen’s work is challenging … but it opens a whole new universe of expression.

“The quality of beautiful and ugly is just something we all construct.”

Judith Shea


Judith Shea, a New York-based artist, explores the human form through various materials.

“I went to Catholic schools all my life… until art school. That was a wonderful shock.”
