Boise Art Museum
NW Perspectives: Judy Hill
March 9 - May 21, 2000
Boise Art Museum presents Judy Hill's cast glass and ceramic figurative sculptures in a "NW Perspectives" exhibition March 9 - May 21, 2000. Hill creates individuality in her figures through gesture, eccentric characteristics and stance, exploring the fragility and contradiction inherent in the human psyche. In these psychological portrayals, dress and body language also suggest metaphors for the ways in which identities are projected and protected. Judy Hill lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Nine of Hill's works dated 1997-99 are on view, courtesy of Grover/Thurston Gallery in Seattle.

In the catalogue of an 1996 exhibition of Hill's work at Marylhurst College, the essayist writes of Hill's message through her sculpture:
This exhibition is made possible by support from BAM's Collectors Forum and the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass. "NW Perspectives" exhibitions present the work of contemporary Northwest artists.
