Judith Monteferrante is fine art photographer living on Cape Ann. As a retired cardiologist, her skills at imaging the heart were transferred to the study of nature’s intimate places. Her main focus is on fine art photography of flowers, often interacting with water, seascapes and still life. She believes that the years of witnessing and helping those who are ill and dying have sharpened her sensitivity, broadened her vision and allow her to see the beauty in the world with meticulous precision and her personal stamp.
While working as a cardiologist full time, she took weekend courses, seminars and workshops in all aspects in photography and then completed a Master’s degree in Photographic Studies with honors (MPS) at the School of Visual Arts, in NYC in 2009.
She was awarded Copley Artist status with the Copley Society of Art in Boston, is a Moab Master photographer (by Legion Paper), serves as an artistic adviser to SeArts and was the former Artistic Director of the Rocky Neck Art Colony. Judith has gallery representation in Massachusetts, New York and Arizona.
Judith recently had two solo shows at the Rockport Art Association and Marblehead Art Association in MA. She has been accepted into thirteen juried shows in 2014-15 and has won numerous awards, most recently First Place in the juried SeArts: Art @Bass Rocks yearlong exhibition in Gloucester, MA. She was published as a Silver Award winner in “Color” magazine in 2011 and won the Haystack Residency Scholarship Deer Isle, ME from the Copley Society of Art in 2010. Judith’s work is in many private and corporate collections.
