Julia Rogoff

Hamden Art League to host Julia Rogoff at May Meeting

At the May 10th meeting of the Hamden Art League, artist Julia Rogoff will present Non-Traditional Approaches to Observational Painting. In her demo, Julia will selectively build up layers of observation through mixed media, bold colors and gestural expressiveness.

A faculty member at Creative Arts Workshop and The Guilford Art Center, the artist is a painter and educator living in Connecticut with a background in the visual arts, the performing arts and in design. She holds a BA from Princeton and did graduate studies in architecture at the University of California, Berkley. In addition, she completed an intensive four-year certificate program in Drawing and Painting from the New York Studio School in 2001. Rogoff has had numerous solo exhibits of her work in Connecticut and participates in faculty shows while teaching.

Julia states that she loves working from observation and thinks of it as "...a superhighway of infinite possibilities. There are so many entrances and exits and intersecting roads, all of which can entertain, delight and even terrify." She views observational painting as a chance for new ideas, adventure and fun.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 in the Social Hall of the Miller Memorial Library Senior Center, 2901 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden. Refreshment and socializing begins at 7:00 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting at 7:15 and the artist's program at 7:30. The program is free and open to the public. If the library is closed due to inclement weather, the meeting will be cancelled.
