Judith Vargas Warren’s exhibit includes works in various mixed media: water color with oil pastel, acrylics with oil pastel, a few soft pastels, and also collages.
Warren studied at the Syracuse University School of Fine Art, Woodstock School of Art, and College of St. Rose. She also studied for many years at The Malden Bridge School of Art, with her aunt, renowned portrait painter Betty Warren.
She now teaches art classes in Kinderhook and Malden Bridge. She has led art workshops throughout the U.S. and in Tuscany and Provence. A workshop is being planned to Umbria and Rome for September 2016.
Having the Last Say shows baby boomers how to write short personal narratives that serve as a powerful form of life review. Says Gelb, “In creating ‘legacies’ in the form of short personal narratives, you have the opportunity to reflect on the people, actions, and events that have shaped your life and your values, and to share these stories with those who matter most.”
Join us as Gelb reads from his book, followed by a conversation with Thomas Chulak from the bookstore and Q & A. Refreshments will be served. Free.
