31 Mar COLOR AND PLACES
TRAVEL THROUGH COLOR, SPACE AND LIGHT WITH “COLOR AND PLACES,” AN EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS BY JULIE GROSS AT THE ARTISTS’ GALLERY, TAYLOR’S COLLECTIVE IN ELLICOTT CITY FOR MONTH OF APRIL, 2019
Julie Gross will present a series of dynamic urban landscapes that explore the neon color palette associated with Miami, Peru and the Caribbean in her show, “Color and Places” at Artists’ Gallery in Ellicott City. The show will run from March 26, 2019 through April 27, 2019 with an opening reception on Saturday, April 6 from 3-5 p.m.
“My urban landscape series began with Baltimore city, but as I began traveling the world, I realized that every place has its own color palette. With my discovery of the magic of color, I realized the joy in simplifying shapes and examining the effects of light. In my current body of work, I’ve examined the effects of black light and neon oil color,” Gross remarked.
Travel connects Gross with the simple pleasures in life: a sunset, a walk, the sights and sounds of a new place. “My newest work explores the idea of removing complexity from the places I visit. I also experiment with size in this series, with pieces as large as six feet and as small as five by five inches,” she commented. “I like these small pieces because they are like little jewel boxes that hold small, brightly colored memories.”
