Biographical / Historical:
Judith Brown (1931-1992) was a sculptor, painter, and dancer in New York, New York, and Brownsville, Vermont. She attended Sarah Lawrence College and studied with Theodore Roszak, 1952-1954. Always fascinated with motion, Brown was noted for successfully capturing fleeting moments of a body's action through sculpture and paintings, with particular interest in how fabric draped and flowed along the body's contours during movement. Brown established herself by the late 1950s, and from then on had a long career of exhibiting and selling her work.

Brown's work was exhibited widely throughout the United States and Europe, featured in group shows at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts, the Boston Arts Festival, The New Britain Museum of American Art, and many other galleries and museums. Brown's one-person exhibitions include shows at Zygos Gallery in Cyprus and Galeriea de Antonio Souza in Mexico City, as well as galleries and museums in Vermont, Florida, and New York City. Brown's artwork was also displayed in windows at Tiffany's and Bonwit Teller in their New York City department stores.

In addition to displaying her work in exhibition settings, Brown received many public and private commissions throughout her career. Her public commissions may be found in many U.S. states including New York, Vermont, New Jersey, Virginia, Georgia, and California; and she has work currently housed with several museums and corporations including the Pepsi Company, Marriott Corporation, Dartmouth College, Vermont Law School, Jewish Museum, and the Museum of Dance.

During her career, Brown was a trustee and member of the Vermont Council on the Arts, member of Artists Equity Association, Creative Arts Rehabilitation, and Women in the Arts Foundation, Inc. She received honorable mention in the Gold Medal Competition at the Architectural League of New York City in 1958, an award from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation in 1970, and an award in creative art from the American Academy and the National Institute of Arts and Letters in 1976.

The bulk of the collection was donated by Judith Brown in 1978. Additional materials were donated in 1995 and 2007 by Brown via Peter Stettenheim, Brown's brother and the executor of her will.

Biographical Note:
Born in Krivoi Rog, Russia on January 1, 1901, Eugenie was the youngest of the Gershoy children. The family immigrated to New York City in 1903. She later became a U.S. citizen.

With the aid of two scholarships, she attended the Art Students League and studied under A. Stirling Calder, Leo Lentelli, Kenneth Hayes Miller, Boardman Robinson, and Carl Walters. During the late 1920s and early 1930s, she maintained a studio with Harry Gottlieb in Woodstock, New York. From 1936 to 1939, under the WPA Federal Art Project, she worked in conjunction with Max Spivak on murals for the children's recreation room in the Astoria branch of the Queens Borough Public Library, New York.

Gershoy's first solo show was at the Robinson Gallery in New York in 1940. Following a year of teaching at the New Orleans Art School, she moved to San Francisco in 1942. In 1946 she taught ceramics at the California School of Fine Arts, and in May 1950, she studied at Yaddo.

In addition to visits to England and France in the early 1930s, Gershoy travelled to Mexico and Guatemala in 1947, 1948, and 1961. She worked in Paris in 1951 and toured Africa, India, and the Orient in 1955.

Eugenie Gershoy died in 1986.
