The Batavia Society of Artists is hosting artist Julie Lambert on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. at Go-Art/Seymour Place, 201 E. Main St., Batavia. Julie will take us through how she makes handmade paper and how she uses it in her artwork. Non-Members are welcome for a $5.00 fee. The 2.o.1. Tavern will be open during the demonstration for cash purchases.
Julie A. Lambert is an award-winning papermaking artist who lives in Le Roy. While pursuing her BFA in Printmaking and Painting at SUNY Oswego, the artist learned how to make paper. Instantly intrigued by the art form, Julie found her medium.
The artist’s works reflect her deep connection to nature and her surroundings. Through handmade paper, Julie explores both natural forms and humankind’s impact on the landscape. Many of her pieces are based on her love of exploration. Sometimes inspired by brooding skies, a twist of a tree or a decaying structure, nature speaks to her and she recreates these scenes in her art.
Julie is also creating a series called “Discern”. Words' meanings are often interpreted based on influences in social media and life experiences. The artist’s works are created to challenge her own perceptions and encourage questioning and conversation.
Recently retired, Julie has been pursuing her art full time, winning 3 awards, and participating in 10 exhibitions, including a solo show, in the past 2 years. Julie has also taught several workshops at local venues including the Rochester Brainery. Julie is excited to present to the Niagara Art Guild and the Batavia Society of Artists. The artist is currently showing at the MVA Gallery in Easton Pa. and Go-Art.
Julie is a member of The Batavia Society of Artists and The Rochester Contemporary Art Center.
