Naomi Roth '85 hosts a special walk-through of the art studio of her late mother and local Chicago artist, Judith Roth. Commentary by Professor David Sokol of UIC will also be featured.
Born in Boston and deeply influenced by its expressionist tradition of figurative painting (Hyman Bloom, Max Beckmann, David Aronson, Karl Zerbe, et al.), Roth studied at the Boston Museum School, Tufts University, and the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. Later she was influenced by such figurative artists as Edgar Degas, Raphael Soyer, Alice Neel, and Horst Janssen. She arrived on the Chicago art scene committed to synthesizing these two artistic worlds. While teaching figure drawing throughout the Chicago area, her community activism and the Chicago Women's Caucus for Art presidency in 2001 led her to found the still vital Ravenswood ArtWalk. Her drawings and paintings are in corporate, museum, and private collections across the country.
