Saving the world, one painting at a time, Judy Takács is best known for the painterly realism of her oil portraits and the message of female empowerment of her traveling portrait series, Chicks with Balls: Judy Takács paints unsung female heroes, which opened as her first solo museum show at the Zanesville Museum of Art in early 2020. Similarly, her Goddess Project, currently showing through June 12th, 2020 as a solo show at Chagrin Arts in Chagrin Falls, re-imagines the mythological characters from all religions via a contemporary feminist lens.

A winner of thirteen Best in Show awards since 2011, her figurative work has been exhibited in solo, invitational and juried shows at the Butler Institute of American Art, Zanesville Museum of Art, Evansville Museum, ArtNEO Museum, MOCA Cleveland, Haggin Museum, Salmagundi and National Arts Clubs, and at colleges and art centers nationally. Takács has national art competitions for Susquehanna University, Rochester Art Club and The Bryn Du Art Show as well as local ones throughout Northeast Ohio.

A signature member of the Akron Society of Artists and American Women Artists, Takács currently holds elected membership with the Salmagundi and Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Clubs, and also a board position with the Allied Artists of America as Social Media Chair. She is past chair of Social Media, and Literature Committee writer for the Portrait Society of America. She has written, directed and hosted 66 episodes of Living Figuratively, her weekly broadcast, now on YouTube, designed to spur a love of figurative art. Her paintings, projects and contributions to the figurative art world are noted on Wikipedia.

Choosing subjects for their strength of character, Takács’ portraits depict women of courage, resilience and everyday heroism. Her goal is to truthfully depict a living, breathing soul whose presence invites viewers to linger, connect and think.
