Judith Weichsel Carr (1942 – 2018) was an important member of the New Mexico arts community from the time she arrived here in the late 1960’s. She was born in New York and educated in the East until she went to the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, where she received a B.F.A. and an M.F.A. in Weaving and Fine Arts. She became an Instructor of Weaving and Fine Arts at UNM in 1970, as well as the University of Albuquerque in 1973. She was an innovating force in modern tapestry weaving and fiber arts through her teaching, her exhibits, and her work with other artists and private students. She continued to explore fiber art and create beautiful and surprising work until the very end of her life. The exhibit runs through February 23rd.
