"Mended World is Judy Martin's third solo exhibition at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. In 2004, the Gallery worked with the artist to organize My Hand Sings Red and in 1991, I Will Remember You Until I Die. Though she has lived on Manitoulin Island for the last twenty years, Judy was born in Fort Frances and lived a good part of her life in Kenora, so we embrace her as an artist from Northwestern Ontario. Those who saw Judy's previous exhibiitons at the Gallery will be surprised at the developement of her work over the last nine years. On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of the thunder Bay Art Gallery, I extend congratulations to her on the monumental achievement that is represented by this exhibition. "
Above text is from the foreword to the 24 page catalogue for the Mended World Exhibition written by Sharon Godwin, Director, Thunder Bay Art Gallery.
Now, with this show up, my degree finished, my dad finally living in Little Current, and my studio collapsed into a bedroom at home - I feel that I am on an edge of something new.
It feels open. I don't know what will come next, but something will.
