Event Type

Judy Abbott is an artist of Esopus/Munsee descent from the Kingston-Margaretville area. She will be showing her work at The Rosendale Theatre through November 31st.

Judy was part of a unique Art team with her husband Doug Alderfer, who also had Shawnee ancestry. Ecology was always their overarching theme in their paintings of landscape and man’s impact upon it.

Doug died a year and a half ago but Judy continues to make vigorous Art that explores man and his relationship with nature.

The works in this exhibit are incised ceramic tiles that reference Native Rock petroglyphs in Arizona and elsewhere. There is also a drawing of the famed Esopus Wampum belt signifying peace between the Esopus people and the colonists in Kingston.
