Skillman Artist in Hopewell

By Barbara A. Preston, Editor | December 4

Judith Snedeker Jaquith, a proud member of the first graduating class of Montgomery High School, is now retired from her job as a special education teacher and spends much of her time painting. Her art will be on display at the Hopewell Valley Bistro & Inn through January 31.

Oil painting by Judith Snedeker Jaquith of Skillman, on exhibit in Hopewell.

“Eventide on the Marsh” is “a painting from my imagination,” Jaquith says. “I had just finished reading Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, a great book about coming of age in the Carolina marshes. This is what I imagined those marshes were like.” Jaquith was born and raised in Skillman.

Her cousin, Henry Raymond, also from Montgomery Township, will have art on display in Hopewell as well. Raymond is an associate professor in Rutgers’ Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology.
