In the Gallery at R&F:
Julie Hedrick's Rome will have an opening reception on Saturday, February 2nd from 5-7pm. The exhibition runs through March 23rd, 2013.
The paintings of Kingston artist, Julie Hedrick, are deceptive. Hedrick paints atmospheric auras that, at first glance, appear to be very simple, minimal fields of color. But variations in tone and her use of impastos give the work a complex, veiled, glowing appearance, where colors and light appear to be shifting, vibrating and transforming within the picture space. Light emanates from the depth of Hedrick’s paintings, pulling the viewer in and surrounding them with the energy of a spiritual place. The artist reminds us of our connection with the universe and our inner selves by inviting viewers to slow down, reflect, and re-energize. For her first show at the Gallery at R&F, Hedrick has created a new series of frescoes inspired by Rome.
