Judith Schwartz is an art historian and an educator at New York University where she has been professor emeritus since 2017 specializing in sculpture and craft media.

Schwartz studied ceramics at Ohio State University from 1960 to 1962. She went on to receive a B. A. in studio art from Queens College in 1964 and an M. A. from New York University in 1969.

As a result, she developed the exhibition Confrontational Clay (2000-2002), along with the book Confrontational Ceramics published in 2008, showcasing works by these artists.

Before beginning her career at New York University in 1970, Schwartz held positions with Sculpture in the Environment (SITE), Lenox China Company, World Organization Ceramic Education Foundation, Korea Ceramic Foundation, and the International Academy of Ceramics. She is a member of the National Council on Education in the Ceramic Arts, American Craft Council, Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts, and other organizations.

Biographical / Historical:
Samuel Wood Gaylor (1883-1957) and Adelaide Lawson Gaylor (1889-1986) were husband and wife artists who worked primarily in New York.

Samuel Wood Gaylor was a painter and lithographer known for his colorful paintings and colored wood carvings. Wood Gaylor was born in Stamford, Connecticut and moved frequently throughout his childhood. When he turned sixteen, he left school to begin work creating sewing patterns at Butterick's. Wood continued to work in the sewing pattern industry where he advanced from designer to assistant manager for the Home Pattern Company, and finally to head of the Manhattan based locations of the New York Pattern Company.

In 1909, he married his first wife Ruth E. M. Lorick, with whom he had one daughter Ruth Wood Gaylor, and began his art training at the National Academy of Design. He continued in 1912 by taking instruction from Walt Kuhn at the New York School of Art in Fort Lee, New Jersey. In 1926, Wood married his second wife Adelaide Lawson, with whom he had two sons Wynn Lawson and Randall, and one daughter Isabel (Dale) Gaylor who died in 1955.

During his career Wood created artwork in several styles including the impressionist, abstract, and muralistic styles. He had works exhibited in the Armory Show, was a part of the Cooperative Mural Workshop for a short time, and had multiple solo exhibitions. In 1917, Wood joined the Penguin Club with Walt Kuhn and others. This club aimed to provide support for artists who rejected the conservative aesthetics of the National Academy. He exhibited at the Armory Show, the Penguin Club, and the Downtown Gallery and participated in many art organizations including the Kit-Kat Club, Modern Artists of America, American Society of Painters, and Sculptors and Engravers. He served on the board for the Salons of America, the Hamilton Easter Field Art Foundation, the New York City Municipal Art Committee, and the Museum of Art, Ogunquit, Maine.

Wood Gaylor died in 1957 at the age of seventy-three in Glenwood Landing, New York.

Adelaide Lawson Gaylor was a painter known for her modernist oil paintings of figures and landscapes. Adelaide Lawson was born in New York to her parents Simeon Levy and Belle Hart Lawson. She completed her artistic training at the Art Students League of New York under Kenneth Hayes Miller and also studied under Hamilton Easter Field at his Ogunquit School of Painting and Sculpture in Ogunquit, Maine.

Lawson's first public exhibition was at the MacDowell Club in 1916. In 1922, she contributed a painting to a group exhibition held at a segregated high school art studio in Washington D.C. organized and run by black artists. Lawson was a supporter of Black rights and because of her participation in this event her name can be found listed among other black artists. Other exhibitions and shows Lawson participated in were with the Whitney Studio Club, Society of Independent Artists, and the New York Society of Women Artists. She also joined and became a director of the Salons of America founded by Hamilton Easter Field. In 1925, Lawson had her first solo exhibition at Gallery 134.

Adelaide Lawson Gaylor died in 1986 at the age of 97 in Long Island, New York.
Provenance:
The Wood and Adelaide Lawson Gaylor papers were donated in several installments from 1958 to 2015. In 1958 material found on reel D9 was donated by T. J. McCormick. Material on reel D160 was donated in 1964 by Adelaide Lawson Gaylor and the remainder of the material was donated in 1986 by the Gaylors' sons, Wynn L. and Randall Gaylor.
