Judith Effa Ford, winner of the Clifton Cultural Arts Center’s twelfth annual Golden Ticket Juried Exhibition, presents a solo show at CCAC’s Short Vine Gallery. The exhibition opens on Saturday, June 25, and runs through July 15.
The show incorporates her winning piece entitled ‘BEWARE: she who has been trod upon shall rise mighty and with purpose’ and a body of work that combines the figurative and the abstract in ways that critique and question representations of beauty. Mixed media is foundational to Ford’s process, with paintings incorporating objects from earrings found in parking lots to industrial refuse. You’ll also notice a bold love of color. Ford explains that, to her, art is first and foremost “color and joy and uplifting energy that feeds my soul!”

The newest exhibition at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center amplifies the voices of incarcerated artists and criminal justice advocates through powerful visual art. Art made in prison is often excluded by established art institutions, but Marking Time aims to shift aesthetic currents and help people understand the reach and impact of the carceral state.

Marking Time is included with general admission and is free for Members and on Fifth Third Community Days.
