Judith A. Brust has been involved in the world of art for more than three decades. She has exhibited her work in a multitude of solo and group shows worldwide, including at Modernism and ART20 at the Park Avenue Armory in New York and at an international juried two-part exhibition at the Hun Gallery in Seoul, Korea. Many of her pieces have found homes in private and corporate collections throughout the U.S., including the permanent collection at the Mandarin Hotel in Boston alongside works by David Hockney and Frank Stella.
Working in various mediums, Ms. Brust is best known for her paintings, drawings, sculptures, and large-scale layered monoprints. She studies and draws inspiration from the writings of Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell and Gaston Bachelard, as well as fellow painters and sculptors such as Mark Rothko, Paul Klee, Louise Bourgeois and Eva Hesse.
In addition to working as a solo artist in her own studios, Ms. Brust has been a successful gallery owner in Rochester, New York and on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. In 2004, Ms. Brust established galleryblue in Rochester. She relocated the unique gallery to Old South Wharf on Nantucket in 2006 when she and her husband, Bob, moved to the island. Featuring original, out-of-the ordinary art, the gallery celebrated influential artists reflecting the historically sophisticated and international flavor of Nantucket.
