Craven Arts Council & Gallery is proud to present the work of Judith Cutler in the Director’s Gallery at Bank of the Arts for the month of December. Judith Cutler is a local painter and master pastelist with a fine art background who enjoys experimenting with her painting technique.

Judith Cutler has a background in fine art and graphic design. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Pennsylvania State University. Judith believes “experimentation, while in the creative process, initiates the playful, ‘what if’, fun factor to art making. Doesn’t always work out but is engaging to try.” The Pastel Society of America designated Judith a Signature Member in 2003 and a Master in 2007. She is a Master Circle Member (2009) of the International Association of Pastel Societies, Southeastern Pastel Society- Member of Excellence, as well as a member of Piedmont Pastel Society and North Carolina Pastel Society. Judith Cutler’s artist statement is simply, “Be Happy!”.
