Paula Hudson, PhD. featured artist for March at Shumei International; Symposium March 19th


Paula Hudson’s work will be on display at the Shumei Gallery in Crestone for March 2017. A symposium with Paula will be held on this Sunday March 19th starting a 3pm. A reception will follow.


The show is a collection of expressionistic oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings of many subjects. In Paula’s words, “They are products of my feelings about them, such as their sense of intimacy, grandeur, peace, intensity, pleasure, etc. These feelings are represented by a heightened focus on the use of value and color.”


Paula has been painting since she was 8 years old. Born in Chicago, she moved to Colorado in 1966.  Paula holds a PH.D. as a Speech Language Specialist and has done therapy with children and adults for 45 years.  During that time she taught at D.U. and C.U. and ran a speech/language program statewide for the state of Colorado. She has continued to show in galleries during that time. She is now a fulltime painter with shows in Denver and Crestone.  She is presently searching for new markets.


Paula states, “We all have our own means of expression.  I am a painter.  Others are artists at helping others, at cooking, making herbal remedies, weaving, serving the community, poetry and many, many more. Along with the many forms of expression there are myriad ways we choose to show our talents. I use color, composition, values and other technical aspects of painting to convey the feelings and sights that impact me.”


Come meet Paula and learn more about her art this Sunday March 19th starting at 3pm to 5pm. This event is free to the public, please visit or call 256-5284 for more information. The Shumei gallery is open every day 9 to 5pm.
