Judy Anderson is Cree from the Gordon First Nation whose practice includes beadwork, installation, hand-made paper, painting, three-dimensional pieces, and, collaborative projects. Her work is deeply personal with a focus on issues of spirituality, family, graffiti and popular representations of Aboriginal people. More recently, her works are created with the purpose of honouring the people in her life. After returning from a residency at ISCP in Brooklyn, NY she left her faculty position at the First Nations University to become a new faculty member at the University of Calgary where she will teach both Studio and Indigenous Art History. Recent exhibitions include Bead Speak (Slate Fine Art Gallery), The Sole Project (upcoming at The Art Gallery of Regina), and Working Mom (Last Mountain Lake Gallery).
