Judith and her husband moved to Uist in the early 90s. With a mutual passion for wildlife, nature and crofting, they fast became fully immersed in island life. Judith was able to focus on her love of painting while also working for many years at The Hebridean Smokehouse as a manager. Her commitment to arts in Uist was evident in her drive to develop Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre where she was a prominent member of the Board of Trustees for many years and an active member of the Uist Art Association. She was central to the early development of the summer Art on the Map open studio trail.
There is so much to enjoy in this retrospective exhibition of Judith Entwisle-Bakers’ work. A prominent Uist artist in her own right and a supportive friend to many. Her inspiration came from her love of the Uist landscape, wildlife and in particular birdlife. She expressed this through vibrant watercolours, monoprints, and pen and ink studies. Many of Judith’s more recent paintings were inspired by St Kilda, which she visited on several occasions, but by far, most of her inspiration came from closer to home in North Uist.
In this exhibition of a very personal selection of Judith’s artwork, the visitor will experience a range of Judith’s paintings and drawings rarely shown publicly and spanning her painting career. Some of it features earlier work drawn from other locations throughout the UK.
Many pieces are available for sale. All funds raised will be returned to her family and donated to Headway charity in Judith’s memory.
