Julie is one of the original artists associated with The Village Gallery since its inception. Primarily a watercolor and collage artist, Julie's art can best be described as abstract expressionism. She wants her art to make the viewer feel happy. When that happens, she feels happiest as an artist. She has been painting for more than 30 years, with a strong background in drawing and color theory. She studied art and both Eastern and Western Michigan Universities, receiving Bachelors degrees. She has participated in many additional art workshops, including summer workshops led by Charles Hinman in Oriental. Her show this month contains many large works, which she enjoys painting most.
The Village Gallery is a cooperative fine art gallery of more than 30 member and consigned artists, primarily from coastal North Carolina. The Gallery is open from 10:00AM until 5:00PM Thursday through Sundays.
The Gallery is located at 300 Hodges Street in Oriental, NC . The gallery’s display changes frequently with different artists and works presented.
