about the artist
In 1974, towards the end of her fourth year at York University's Fine Arts programme, Judy Singer was discovered by the late Jack Pollock, one of Toronto's foremost gallery owners of the times. From this first show at the Pollock Gallery, she has gone on to show in many solo and group exhibits across Canada and the United States.
Most notably, Singer was chosen in 1982 to represent Canada at the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh. In 2006, she was inducted into The Royal Canadian Academy of Arts.
Over the years, she has forged strong collegial relationships with many luminaries in the art world; fellow artists Sir Anthony Caro, Helen Frankenthaler, and Larry Poons who critiqued her work at The Triangle Workshop in 1983 and prominent critics Ken Carpenter, the late Clement Greenberg, Karen Wilkin, Kenworth Moffett, and Joan Murray who have all been regular visitors to her studio
Judy Singer also taught painting, drawing and art history at York University from 1976 to 2005. She continues to impart her passion for art through her lectures and workshops.
