Art Exhibit January – March 2020
Judith Probst is an artist who lives and works in Tucson, Arizona. She paints landscapes of the Southwest and portraits of animals, especially horses. She grew up in rural southern Indiana, and has a Bachelor of Science degree in Astrophysics from Indiana University. After graduation she began studies in Studio Art with Richard Crozier at the University of Virginia. Judith completed her graduate studies at San Jose State University in California with a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting.
Her paintings are in many private collections across the United States and in Chile. Her astronomer husband took their family to Chile to work at an observatory. The Probst family spent almost 5 years in La Serena, Chile, on the Pacific coast. Judith offered classes in oils and watercolor painting to adults and preteens in the La Serena Community. She also participated in group shows at the Universidad de La Serena, the Fourth Region Biennial Exhibition of Fine Arts, and in a two person exhibition at the cultural center of the City of Coquimbo.
Judith is a member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild, The Drawing Studio, and paints in plein air as often as she can. She is a member of the Desert Artisans’ Gallery, one of the oldest active cooperative galleries in Southern Arizona. Most of her images come from her own photographs, or plein air studies. Commissions are welcome. She is also willing to discuss painting in mediums other than acrylic and watercolor.
