Stephanie Snyder, the John and Anne Hauberg Curator and Director of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery at Reed College, joins exhibiting artist Julie Green in conversation. The discussion will focus on Green's recent paintings in her solo exhibition Food, Fashion, and Capital Punishment and their relationship to Green's practice at large.

Following the talk, Picnic Brownies Make Life Easy becomes available for purchase. A limited edition facsimile of Green's personal cookbook, it includes functional recipes, notes, sketches and images collected in an antique ledger. Its creation was funded by the Oregon Arts Commission and Ford Family Foundation.

Julie Green's Food, Fashion and Capital Punishment remains on view through July 28, 2018. Join the artist for the First Thursday art walk on July 5, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

Paintings in Julie Green's Food, Fashion and Capital Punishment include hidden content

Julie Green embeds narrative details, easily missed in a cursory look, in or near the borders of each painting. Each also has content not readily visible in the gallery setting: on the front, elements in glow in the dark paint; on the back, facsimiles of women's fingerprints. Once charged in daylight, the glow-in-the-dark paint shines all night long.

Now available: Phone Book by Julie Green

The inimitable Julie Green was by the gallery recently to sign and number the first batch of her new artist monograph, Phone Book, published by Upfor. The paintings of various people’s phone screens documented in the monograph were created between 2011 and 2017.

From the book: “I painted the first phone, my own, the day after I got contact lenses. I could see! And I was amazed at the beauty of the phone apps, a contemporary Fabergé egg.” Looking closer, we can read these personal devices as a kind of portraiture.
