Charlotte Yudis, RIP

Charlotte Yudis, master printmaker, teacher and a fine person passed away this week.

I had heard about Charlotte and her work for many years, but never met her before the first evening that I taped her. You will find those videos on the sidebar of this page. We got together during a printmaking class she taught at Fleisher Art Memorial. My first impression that night was how warm and helpful she was to each and every student in the class, and to me. I feel fortunate to have met her. She will be kindly remembered and sadly missed.

Services will be held Thursday, January 11th at the Goldstein Funeral Home, 6410 N. Broad Street. Call for the time. 215-927-5800

There will be a special memorial held for Charlotte Yudis on Sunday, January 28, 2007, at 4:30 pm in the Sanctuary of the Fleisher Art Memorial.
