Judy's Artist Statement:

Judy Lyons Schneider, a printmaker and mixed media artist, was born in NYC and studied at the Art Students League and New York University, as well as with many noted artists throughout her art career.

After living in New Jersey for many years, she moved to Lakewood Ranch over 15 years ago, and has never looked back. A past Area III Chairperson of Florida Artist Group- aka FLAG- (a juried state-wide organization), and a past-President,  past-Treasurer, past Membership Chair, and current Co-President of Women Contemporary Artists (WCA), a regional organization of about 130 women artists, and a Petticoat Painter (an invitational group of 20), Judy is an advocate for the visual arts in her community. 

Ms. Schneider has been actively involved in making art for over 60 years.
Her work has appeared in museums, galleries and universities throughout this country and in Russia. She has had over 25 solo shows- in places like the Gallery for the Study of Women and Gender at Princeton University, Sarasota Women’s Resource Center, Sinclair College in Dayton, Ohio, Venice Art Center, Harmony Gallery in the West Coast Symphony Center, Art Center Sarasota, and Interchurch Center in New York City. In addition to a Geraldine Dodge Foundation Grant and a Soaring Gardens Artist Retreat Residency Grant, her art has won many prizes. She recently received a Signature Award from ISEA (International Society of Experimental Artists). Her work has been represented in several shows that have traveled nationally.
