Judy Thompson is currently showing at Gallery 92 West in Fremont Nebraska from April 30th through May 26th.  This exhibition features her Homestead Series as well as additional related works.  

The Homestead Series was inspired during her 2010 artist residency at the Homestead National Monument in Beatrice, NE and has been traveling throughout the Midwest to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Homestead Act.

The artist's reception was Saturday, May 4th where the artist gave a short talk regarding the inspiration and process in creating this series.  Judy also shared her most recent artist-in-residence experience at Badlands National Park where she spent one month living on site, creating artwork and teaching local K-8 students.
