Julie Riley is an artist of representational impressionism, oil paint, acrylic paint and resin are Julie’s preferred method of expression to capture the sites, colors and values of her subjects. She regularly experiments with colors that not only complement one another but show emotion, movement and shape while using a palette knife and purposeful brushstrokes.
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.
Julie’s Front Street artist studio is open to the public each First Friday (5-9p), Second Saturday (11a-4p) and Third Sunday (11a-4p) of the month. She would love for you to stop by her studio to see her artwork or just talk art. If you would like to stop by at your convenience, please contact her to arrange a time.
