Objective Painting: Featuring 12 Artists, Curated by James Hayward, Opening Thursday Aug. 3, 5-8pm.
Hayward has carefully curated a wide variety of artists, primarily from the west coast, ranging from emerging young artists to mid career internationally recognized artists.
"I personally know, admire, respect and collect most of the painters I have included in this show. I chose the title, Objective Painting, as it seemed sufficiently open to include figurative, landscape, allegorical, portrait, nature, fantasy and the surreal. I have tried not to focus on any one aspect of image making,” says Hayward of his show curation.
View paintings from Tom Allen, Diane Best, Gregory Botts, Amy-Claire Huesits, Brian Fahlstrom, Frank Gaard, Steve Galloway, Ed Johnson, Julia Lackner, Rae Lewis, Max Maslansky and Dan McCleary at Telluride Gallery through the month of August or on our website.
Catalogs are available at TGFA or by request.

New prints of my "Color Band Series" available at TW Fine Art: http://twfineart.com/product-category/artists/julika-lackner/

"We have just added a new series of art in print by TWFineArt’s Julika Lackner. This series is a gorgeous abstract representation of the American landscape in locations like Yellowstone National Park. Like the impressionists, Lackner captures moments of light and color. What she sees around her is depicted in layers of horizontal bands that reference the horizons of landscape. Like layers of sediment, the bands pile on top of each other to create complex abstract visions of the environments around her." 

February 2014

TW Fine Art is now selling select prints of my works on paper. They make beautiful prints. Take a look here: http://twfineart.com/product-category/artists/julika-lackner/
