Judy Belasco: New Work

Judy Belasco is drawn to places where the interplay of water, sky, and light are shaped by atmospheric weather. Her goal is to create a place of harmony where the realm between reality and spirituality coexist.

Belasco grew up surrounded by art and knew at an early age that she wanted to be an artist. Her family lived in artist’s colonies in Germantown, Pennsylvania, during the winter, and Gloucester, Massachusetts, and Maine during the summer. Belasco’s  father, Oliver Nuse, and her grandfather, Roy C. Nuse, were both fine artists. Roy was a Pennsylvania Impressionist of the New Hope School and taught at the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. As a child, Belasco remembers being in awe of the beauty of his paintings.

Belasco won a scholarship to the Philadelphia College of Art, where she studied painting with Louis Finkelstein and Joseph Fiore, before switching to photography to work with notable teacher Ray Metzger.  She received her BFA in 1972 from the Philadelphia College of Art, which is now University of the Arts. That same year a photograph by Belasco was included in a prestigious exhibit at MOMA of noted photographers titled “About Women.”

Later, in Maine, Belasco studied digital photography with John Paul Caponigro and painting with Linden Frederick.

Belasco was an art teacher at the Germantown Friends School, a Quaker preparatory school, a position she held for 32 years. In 2008 she retired to focus full-time on her painting. Belasco divides her time between Philadelphia and Maine, where she loves to explore the woods and coastline.
