About Katalin Luczay

 

I was born in Budapest, Hungary. Since emigrating, I have lived in South America, Canada and several of the United States.  I majored in Mathematics, minored in Art, and received a BA degree from the University of Toronto, Canada. 

    Although soon after graduating college I had to work in the technical fields I never totally gave up on my love of art. After settling in Hunterdon County New Jersey USA, I was influenced by two local artists under whom I studied Elenor Moorhouse of Somerset, NJ and R. Woolston Rapp of Ferndale, PA. Later I finally had the opportunity to open my own studio and devote time to develop as an Artist. For the past thirty years, I have taught art in the Adult Education programs and Senior Citizen centers, as well as at the Somerset Art Center, and  I have conducted classes in oil painting at my studio for beginners and advanced students of all ages, from children to seniors.  I find great joy in developing the hidden talents of my students as  I focus on guiding them in finding their own style and subject interests.  Some of my students are now also exhibiting their own works, and becoming successful artists in their own right.      

    Through the years I have exhibited my works in juried shows such as the Manhattan Art competition where I received honorary mention for my painting of the Twin Towers, as well as in New Jersey such as the Mountain art show in Bernardsville, where I have received several honorary mentions and first prizes. My works have also been exhibited in Galleries in New Hope, PA and Lambertville NJ, and more recently in the Upstairs Gallery in Lahaska, PA Guild for Creative Art, Shrewsbury NJ.  My paintings also hang in private collections in Europe, India, Canada, China, Japan and the US.
