Slow down! Take time to deeply observe works of art in select Agnes exhibitions. Judith Brown, a subject in the Blur portraits, will lead you through a contemplation practice, this experience  allows for relaxation and new insights.

“I am passionate about Black history because it was never taught in schools,” says Judith Brown. “I think many people—Blacks and everybody—know very little about it. That’s why I try to spread the stories.”

Judith has been advocating for the African and Caribbean communities on campus and in Kingston for decades. Now retired after a forty-year career as an educator, she serves as a mentor to members of Black student groups. Judith has become such a respected mentor that it is not uncommon for students to go to her house for Thanksgiving dinner or to stay overnight when returning to campus for convocation. She was also recently elected as a trustee to the Limestone District School Board.
