During The Venice Glass Week, Beatrice Burati Anderson presented, in its' double venue of its Venetian gallery -  Fango Fuoco Fiori - Mud Fire Flowers - until November 26 - the solo exhibition of Art and Glassworks by American artist Judi Harvest. In the Calle de la Madonna venue a display of three large-scale oil paintings, as well as five recent encaustic paintings. In the Corte Petriana space a number of videos on the artist's work are exhibited, as well as, a series of glass works and the neon installation that gives the exhibition its title.

Judi Harvest is a multifaceted artist with extraordinary energy, originally a classically trained abstract painter, who for the past thirty-five years has lived and worked between New York and Venice, her city of choice, where her cherished themes related to the fragility of the ecosystem and beauty have found one of their best expressions in glass art. 
Judi Harvest

To get a broader idea of the importance of Judi Harvest's work, one must consider the motivations behind it.  Since 1988 her glass works have taken shape in the furnace of Murano maestro Giorgio Giuman in Sacca Serenella. There over time  she has comes into contact with the wonder and precariousness of the balance of the lagoon environment and the problems associated with the survival of glassmaking. She is also a beekeeper and has always been particularly sensitive to environmental issues and sees a similarity in the need for and ways of protecting both.

The coincidence between mastery of work and half a century of commitment to environmental protection culminated in a true miracle when in 2013 the artist felt the need to transform a forgotten field behind Giorgio Giuman's glass factory into EdenThe creation of the magical Bees Garden, where an exquisite limited edition honey is produced, is an incarnation, on various levels, of a true ethical masterpiece, the care of which is carried on by the artist in parallel with her prolific activity as a painter and glass sculptor. Master glassmakers, beekeepers, gardeners and local people, from Murano, Venice and the hinterland, have been involved by her on crucial issues of pollination, through the power of Art.
