Another Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council youth exhibit has opened at the Stephenville Public Library featuring the work of young photographer Judson Wells.
“I like finding beautiful things that people might not notice and sharing them,” Wells said.
Wells, the youngest of four siblings, is a fifth grader at Gilbert Intermediate School and the son of Tim and Dori Wells of Stephenville.
“In addition to participating in local sports, Jud has attended CTFAC’s Broadway Boot Camps, Art Camps and Manners Camp,” said CTFAC Executive Director Julie Crouch Smith. “Speaking from personal experience, Jud is truly an exceptional young man with tremendous talent and poise. He is a joy to be around and is so well rounded.”
Wells’ work can be viewed at the SPL during operating hours of 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays; noon-8 p.m. Thursdays; and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays.
“Jud takes every opportunity he can to serve others. He likes sports, archery, photography and various outdoor activities with friends,” his biography states. “His future plans are to work hard in school in order to get accepted to TCU where he can grow in faith, academics and athletics. He would like to become a professional athlete like Bo Jackson.”
Wells’ big brother, Miller — who is the administrative assistant at the CTFAC and an artist himself — is proud.
“I’m very happy that at a young age he is already able to express himself through a multitude of different hobbies that range from sports to art,” Miller said. “He inspires me with how kind and caring he is to anyone he meets, and I am so proud of his dedication to his faith.”
The exhibit will be on display through April 29 at the library.
