Visual and musical artist Julianne Ankley featured in two-month show, concert at HVCA
The work of visual and musical artist Julianne Ankley will be featured at Huron Valley Council of the Arts this spring.
Landscapes, Seascapes and Flowers will be exhibited April 3-June 1. The exhibit is composed of landscapes, seascapes and flowers in oils, acrylics and mixed media.
While she’s been a noted musician for some time, Ankley just started to display her work in public this past year. The Port Huron-based artist draws inspiration from Impressionists and combines it with her own unique style, which is featured both in private homes worldwide as large works on canvas and in both public and private murals.
Those attending a gallery reception for her Friday, April 5 from 7-9 p.m. will have the opportunity to meet the artist while enjoying viewing her unique work and enjoying light refreshments.
Ankley said of her art: "I'm inspired by color, contrast and scenery. I love working with oils and also watercolors. With oils, I can layer the paint to achieve depth and vibrancy. With watercolors, I can freely explore where my brush goes. My artwork may not reflect a perfect replica of what is real, but it's a perfect reflection of what I see.
In addition, Julianne and the Acoustic Rogues, featuring the award-winning professional singer/songwriter, will perform in the gallery on April 27.
Tickets are available at www.huronvalleyarts.org or in person at HVCA, located at 205 W. Livingston Road.
