"From B&W Moods to Bright Color Lands"


I recently had the pleasure of showcasing my artwork at the Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook. The opening night was a great success with many friends and visitors coming. The focus of the gallery was a mixed-medium exhibition of my black and white photography and colorful landscape paintings. I really enjoyed putting this collection together; the two contrasting works of art really enhanced the atmosphere of the gallery. The opportunity to display my work in such a beautiful environment was such an exciting experience! 

Press release:

Currently on display at the Mayslake Peabody Estate is a two-part Fine Art Exhibition by local Oak Brook artist Judith Barath.  This exhibition highlights Judith’s two favorite mediums.  Half of the display is devoted to her large format, nature inspired, and vibrantly colored landscapes done in oil on canvas.  The second portion encompasses a wide variety of subject matter captured in stunning black and white photography - where her eye has captured highlights, shadows and textures, all which combine to set the mood of each photograph. 

Mayslake Peabody Estate is located at 1717 W. 31st Street, in Oak Brook Illinois and is owned and operated as an education center for the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County.  The historic 39-room Tudor revival style mansion makes for the ideal location to display artwork of this size and scale.  This current exhibit entitled “From B&W Moods to Bright Color Lands” is the second solo exhibition that Judith has produced at Mayslake – her previous being in 2008.  
The exhibition is on display through October 31 and is free to the public.  Exhibition hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm and Saturday, 9am – 1pm.  For more information please call Mayslake Peabody Estate at (630) 206-9566.

There are additional smaller B&W photographs available for purchase depicting Chicago architecture and local Oak Brook landscape subjects.

You can find signed, full color Gillée greeting cards of my oil paintings, which are excellent present for your loved ones. People who receive them tend to get them framed.

If you have an event at Mayslake you would appreciate the sepia greeting cards featuring Peabody Estate. Additionally find seasonal Thanksgiving greeting cards for purchase.
