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 visits Cedric Smith’s Studio

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.

David was very professional in his approach to selling our property. He was able to find a buyer in a very slow market and work the deal to completion.

David helped me find my first rental homes in the Savannah area. The homes were priced to sell and David ensured that we were in an excellent position to secure a deal in a multiple offer situation. His local area knowledge and experience gave me the edge I needed. 
Nancy Beskar

David is very diligent and works hard for his clients. Very prompt with information and appointments. 
Dawn Feiler

We’ve worked with David a couple of times to try to sell our unit. He always gave it his best even though we had to deal with a couple of “challenging” buyers. This time we finally got a solid buyer and the deal closed today. We really appreciate David’s perseverance and loyalty. He always kept a positive view and helped us negotiate a solid contract that worked for us and should work for our buyer.
