Julie Anderson Wins Second Place in July Show

Julie Anderson, an artist and resident of Point Loma, San Diego, California, won the second-place award in the continuingly competitive July 2021 Member’s exhibition “Complement Conversations” held in the gallery of the San Diego Watercolor Society at 2825 Dewey Rd, Suite 105 Building 202, San Diego, CA; and also available to view on the website, www.sdws.org.  Anderson’s painting entitled “Love Triangle” was selected by prominent artist and juror Dean Mitchell for this honor. Mitchell said of  the painting, “The painting is interesting in composition, texture and human relationships. The unusual view point creates interesting shapes around the figures that reinforces the powerful observation of intimacy.”

Julie was born and raised outside Philadelphia. She holds a BA degree in art from the University of Delaware and completed graduate studies in art and art history at the Tyler School, Temple University. Retiring in 2002, she began her watercolor journey in 2003, beginning with Continuing Education classes followed by SDWS workshops.  Over time, florals and landscapes changed to figures based on her photos and figure drawings.  In 2013 she began painting on tracing paper affixed to watercolor paper which provides the interesting texture seen in her painting.  Recent work explores abstract acrylic/watercolor painting possibilities.  Julie’s paintings have been juried into many exhibitions including SDWS Member and International, WFWS, NWS Member and International, NWS/China Small Image Exchange, and Fallbrook Signature American Watermedia.  Julie’s work may be seen in the monthly SDWS Member Shows, where she frequently wins awards, in periodic Point Loma Artists Association events, and on her website www.julieandersonartist.com. The Gallery Exhibit will run through Saturday August 29, 2021 in the SDWS gallery and on the website at https://www.sdws.org/galleryart.php?cat=6968 where the paintings can be both viewed and purchased from the Online Store.
