Opening Reception at NVision

“I’’m well acquainted with the stretch of Knowlton Street between Hamilton and Crawford Avenues in Northside. I travel these four blocks almost every weekday on the way to my studio in the Off-the-Avenue building. Traveling by foot or bicycle gives me ample time to observe the interesting aspects of this street. In this short stretch one can find homes, factories, businesses, a neighborhood bar, two organic gardens, a bicycle co-op, an art studio, a storefront church and a former funeral home. I wondered if I could communicate my fascination with this perhaps overlooked corner of the city through my art. This series of ten relief prints is my attempt. In creating these works I deepened my own appreciation.” Julie Lonneman
