  1. The artist/curator talk with wine and cheese is from 5-7 pm on Saturday, June 5, 2010. Free Admission.

    Inspired by philosopher John Rawls' A Theory of Justice, Vienna, VA fine artist Judith Peck has taken a legal concept and translated it into a powerful series of paintings that will be shown throughout June 2010 at the Hillyer Art Space near Dupont Circle in downtown Washington, DC.

    "John Rawls’ thought experiment, using a veil to cloak our knowledge of individual’s attributes, renders us able to effectively consider the interests of all people especially the least advantaged members of society," Peck shares.

    This is exemplified in her current series, "Original Position," which uses the imagery of veils to pull viewers in so they can investigate their own ideas about fairness.
