A biography from Penny’s website www.willpenny.com supplies the following background information about the artist: “Will Penny (b. 1984) was raised in Southern Ontario and currently resides in Savannah, Georgia. He has received a diploma in Fine Art from Fanshawe College in London, Ontario and a BFA and MFA in Painting from The Savannah College of Art and Design.

His art explores tensions between the tangible space a painting inhabits, the impact of digital technology on fabricated forms and illusionistic environments.

He has exhibited in The United States and Canada.” Gallery owner, Susan Laney, is an independent curator and director of Laney Contemporary Fine Art with more than 20 years experience in the fine art market. Laney specializes in photography and contemporary art from both emerging and established artists with a focus on the South.

“Come Rain or Come Shine,” Susie King Taylor Community School receives artwork donation from Judge Realty

Lori Judge at Judge Realty Judge Realty Founder and CEO Lori Judge recently donated artwork entitled “Come Rain or Come Shine” to The Susie King Taylor Community School.Lori Judge at Judge Realty

The artwork was created by Ben Tollefson and Elmer Ramos. It consists of brightly colored, over-sized raindrops, two clouds and rainbow created out of thick blocks of foam. It was initially hung as a temporary art installation on the facade of Judge Realty’s office at 347 Abercorn Street in downtown Savannah. When the work came down, Judge was looking for a permanent home for the works and approached the new Susie King Taylor Community School (SKTCS). Commenting on the donation Lori Judge states, “Judge Realty could not be happier that their temporary public art installation Come Rain or Come Shine’ has found a permanent home at the Susie King Taylor Community School. Artists Ben Tollefson and Elmer Ramos’s smile producing rainbow can now be an inspiration to the creative, artistic spirit of all SKTCS students. Judge Realty wishes them all sunny days and clear sailing through their academic careers and beyond.”Artwork donated by Judge Realty

When artist Elmer Ramos was asked about his thoughts regarding the donation, he commented, “Having the support of Judge Realty on this unique opportunity will always be an unforgettable and rewarding experience. But I find it even more rewarding to know that the installation will have a new life, being experienced again by children on the daily.”

SKTCS is in its second year of operation and is located at 1709 Bull Street. SKTCS has 216 students from kindergarten through fifth grade in the building this year. The school will grow to eighth grade by 2021, with the hopes of adding a high school.

Artwork donated by Judge RealtyRooted in the concept of learning through experience, SKTCS offers a progressive curriculum built around placed-based education, personalized learning, and character development, taught using a peaceful schools model. Students in the building have commented on how beautiful the rainbow, clouds, and raindrops are and how much they enjoy looking at them when they arrive each morning. The SKTCS art teacher, Paige Byrne, shares, “Having the artwork in the building lifts your spirits as you move through the hallway. It helps us to look up and lifts us to new heights!”

Judge Realty Art Collection Adds Plastic Sunset, McQueen’s Island, 2016

Plastic Sunset at Judge RealtyJudge Realty Founder and CEO Lori Judge recently added a new piece to her thoughtfully
curated art collection. The piece titled Plastic Sunset; McQueen’s Island by artist Harry Delorme
was part of the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum’s “Making Waves “exhibition. Making Waves
is a Collective Perspective on the Pollution of our Waterways. The exhibition featured twelve
local artists making statements about the critical issue of water pollution.

Artist Harry Delorme composed an informative biography and a description of his Plastic Sunset
composition:

“For more than 30 years, I have used found materials in my paintings and installations, many of
which deal with environmental concerns such as development, habitat loss, global warming, and
plastic pollution. My recent works, since 2012, include functional items made from found plastic
objects, photographs, map and photo-based relief paintings and assemblages made with plastic
items retrieved from the banks of the Savannah River near the McQueen’s Island Trail. “Plastic
beaches” – sites where postconsumer plastic washes up on riverbanks and shorelines – are an
increasing and disturbing phenomenon. Works in my current series include representations of
the historic trail, painted from satellite maps or from landscape photographs I take on site.
These paintings are color matched and covered with found plastic objects washed up on the
shores of the Savannah River near the trail. These items – which are dumped into waterways,
washed away during storms, lost or tossed overboard from watercraft – include a wide cross-section
of consumer plastic items. In the world’s oceans, huge swaths of floating plastic bottle
caps, cigarette lighters, toothbrushes, and smaller plastic particles lurk just under the waves
great garbage gyres. These items are sometimes consumed by and kill birds, fish, and other sea
life. Even more insidious are microplastic particles and fibers found throughout our local
waterways and in local marine life. If we are serious about the health of our oceans and coastal
environments, we must educate people about the consequences of the St. Patrick’s Day plastic
mug tossed into the Savannah River, the cigarette lighter casually dropped from the side of a
fishing boat or pleasure craft, and the countless other plastic items that are released into our
waterways on a daily basis as well as the choices we make each day as consumers.”

The Judge Art Collection focuses on the issues of energy, the economy, and the environment.
Plastic Sunset fits perfectly with the Collection’s themes.

Several pieces of the Collection may also be viewed by visiting the Judge Realty Historic District
office at 347 Abercorn Street.

Judge Realty agents recently had the pleasure of visiting local artist Cedric Smith in his Savannah studio. Cedric is well known for his photography skills and many of you may recognize his name from photo credits in Savannah Magazine, Garden and Gun, and other high profile publications. However, Cedric is also internationally known for his painting skills. In Cedric’s thoughtfully curated studio, Judge agents were able to view completed works as well as works in progress. It was an enlightening morning learning more of what inspires Cedric and his artistic process.

A biography of Cedric posted on his Facebook page states:

“Cedric Smith is a self-taught artist and photographer who while eschewing the “so-called rules of art”, has created a personal genre of work. He draws on a wide range of influences and sources, both traditional and contemporary, and which include landscape art, pop art, brand advertising and photography to express his poignant observations of life in the rural south. A prolific artist, Smith works with a honed discipline on his compositions, seamlessly morphing photographic images into his richly textured pieces, applying and removing layers and lettering.”

Anyone interested in seeing more of Cedric’s exceptional work, please follow his Instagram account @cedricsmithstudio, his Facebook posts, and his website cedricsmithphotography.com.
