For years Stan Jones (above far right) has held musical events and art exhibitions at his residence, Judson House,* at 3733 Washington in Grand Center. That all was put on hold with the pandemic. On June 4, to celebrate the reopening of his exhibition/performance space, Jones and CWEnder Milo Duke, whose art is shown on wall, gathered fellow artists and organized a street show. The event was timed to coincide with June’s First Fridays in Grand Center.
(*Judson House, which is across from CAM and Pulitzer Arts Foundation, was built in 1892 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.)
The exhibition stretched from the front of Judson House on Washington around the east side of the property, which borders Park-Like, Pulitzer Arts Foundation’s not-to-be-missed garden installation.

Participating artists included Jane Martin, above, photographed alongside her paintings. Jane’s sisters, Wendy Wees and Pamela Favazza, also exhibited work in the street show.

Other artists who participated in the June 4 event include B. Arras, Linda Horsley, Henryk Ptasiewicz and Christopher Schulte.

Jones and Duke are planning future art exhibitions and performances by local musicians at Judson House. The next street show will occur during September’s First Fridays in Grand Center. House concerts will begin in August along with a one-person art show. Visit Judson House’s Facebook page for updates. For now, all events will be held outside, weather permitting (there’s a beautiful patio out back).
