June solo show in downtown Seattle

Sightline Institute presents a show of my work now on display in the lobby of their Seattle office through the end of the month. Urban Perspective: City Views is a collection of my abstract urban landscapes in multiple media: oil, acrylics, and gouache-on-paper collage. Most of the images are Seattle area scenes, with a few of Boston, New York, and Vegas.

Sightline Institute, Cascadia's sustainability think tank, is an important organization to the Northwest region and beyond as they research and communicate trends that are crucial to the region's future: health, economy, population, energy, sprawl, wildlife, and pollution. They provide the research and tools needed to make progress on a range of solutions to these issues. The now familiar term 'green-collar jobs' was coined at Sightline.
Please stop by! After viewing the art, you are invited to respond to the question, “What thoughts about sustainability are inspired by Julia's art - or by art in general?” 

A notebook to share your response is available near the artwork, or you can add your comment here.

JH on Sunne Savage Gallery site

I am excited to announce that my work is now represented on the Sunne Savage Gallery website. 

I am listed in the Contemporary section, just above David Hockney. 

Click on my name to view a page of my work.

Also represented in the Contemporary section are two professors from my school: James Weeks, who, though he was never one of my teachers directly, imparted a legacy that included the mixing of jewel-clear color;  and Nick Edmonds, my sculpture professor, who taught me to construct planes and build clear structure, to dance back and forth and view things from every which way, and to attempt the unlikely (an abstract giraffe skull, a clay landscape). I am honored to see my name on the same page with theirs along with the likes of de Kooning and Kline.
