GREENWOOD LAKE — Greenwood Lake Public Library’s Art Gallery presents the work of artist Judi Silvano for the month of September.

Silvano’s colorful history has led her from an early dance career and training as a classical singer in Philadelphia, to becoming an accomplished jazz vocalist, composer and most recently a visual artist.

She has been painting and drawing throughout her life, becoming a collector of art and artifacts with an appreciation for diverse cultures from traveling around the world.

Silvano’s evolution as a visual artist shows her unique personal history as dancer and musician in her visual renderings.

Recognition and participationShe is a member of Goshen Art League, Woodstock Art Association, Northeast Watercolor Society, Middletown Art Group, Washingtonville Artist Cooperative and is a Represented Artist at the Wallkill River School and Gallery.

Her paintings have garnered the Mary Evelyn Whitehill Award for one of her watercolors, first prize for a pastel in a juried show at Newburgh’s Mt. St. Mary College and honorable mention for one of her encaustic oils from the Middletown Art Group.

All that jazzAs a singer, Silvano has toured internationally and recorded with many jazz greats, releasing 14 albums of both classics and original songs. She has been voted Best Jazz Singer in the Hudson Valley and Top Ten Jazz Singer in Down Beat Magazine.
