Judith Selby Lang, Eco Artist- Where We Are
May 13 | 12-12:45pm | Free & Open to the Public
The Barn Gallery | 512 Gibson Road, Woodland

For Judith Selby Lang “making something out of nothing” has been her motto as she crafts her artwork from found objects, discards, trash. While the content of her work has a message about the spoiling of the natural world by the human/industrial world, her intent is to give aesthetic form to what is considered to be garbage. She has long been an advocate for starting right where you are — albeit the sidewalk or the beach. Performed with a dancers grace, the simple activity of “planetary housekeeping” can transform the perils of pollution into an experience that is beautiful and celebratory. She invites people to take a look at how plastic has pervaded every aspect of our lives and how the choices we all make can make a difference.

Her ephemeral public art works have graced the San Francisco Civic Center Plaza, the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve, and Stanley Harbor, Hong Kong to name a few. As a dynamic speaker about the creative life she has presented at the Pitzer Institute for Entrepreneurship in Claremont, CA, Applied Brilliance in Jackson Hole, WY and the Newseum in Washington, DC.
