Meet the Judge - Gina Louthian-Stanley


Gina Louthian-Stanley is a Roanoke, Virginia native. Louthian-Stanley has been creating for as long as she remembers, having the good fortune to have been mentored and taught by some of the area's finest artists. While she has worked with encaustic and cold wax artist since 2006, her most recent works are explorations in combining various mediums and techniques to create the 'atmospheric and textural' qualities, which are symbolic to her works. She has been able to assemble bits and pieces of her lifelong inspiration to create her own artistic style. Louthian-Stanley's works represent the physical and emotional sensations, which carry the viewer into an intimate visual narrative. Louthian-Stanley pursued an interest in continuing her creative endeavors and earned her B.A. Degree from Hollins University and followed by a Master's Degree from Radford University. Her work experience has been teaching art at the high school level and leading workshops around the country. She has received many artistic honors and awards, has been featured in several publications, and has artworks in corporate and private collections locally, nationally, and internationally. Her work can be seen at Market Gallery in Roanoke, VA., Matrix Gallery in Blacksburg, VA., 310 Art Gallery in Asheville, NC, Copper Fox Gallery, Nashville, TN. and at her home studio in Roanoke, VA.
