Additionally, hear updates on how she navigated 2020 and updated her marketing to continue sales throughout the pandemic.

    Registration

    Julie Riley
    Julie Riley is an artist of representational expressionism, oil paint, acrylic paint and resin are Julie’s preferred method of expression to capture the sites, colors and values of her subjects. Although she is constantly experimenting with other methods and surfaces.

    In 2018, after many years away, Julie returned to her love of art by becoming a full-time artist in her studio in the Front Street Buildings in Dayton. Since then, she has had showings of her work at Dayton Visual Arts Center/Contemporary, The Orphanage Gallery, Tejas Gallery, Carillon House, Dayton Society of Artists (juried, Honorable Mention), Art Bus and other locations in the Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati area. 

    In addition, her art work “TIROS-1 Emerging” was selected in a juried art show through the Columbus Cultural Arts Center and was displayed and sold at Fuse Factory Gallery and COSI Museum in Columbus. Julie won the People’s Choice Award in 2019 at the first juried art show in the Front Street buildings.

    “My preferred method of expression is to capture the sites, colors and values of my subjects. I regularly experiment with colors that not only complement one another but show emotion, movement and shape while using a palette knife and purposeful brushstrokes.”
