Julia Gilmore

I knew you would enjoy this virtual exhibition of this artist! - Bold, minimal, representational oil paintings with affection for rich colours and textures. Julia really understands all of the things that women adore. I think her work is fresh, unique and decorative. Fun for any space.
Julia Gilmore’s artistic vision can be attributed to the juxtaposition of her rural roots and a sophisticated urban background. Raised in a small New Hampshire town, Julia migrated north to Montreal. Completing a Fine Arts Degree at Concordia University, she flourished in the Montreal art scene; staging several successful solo art shows as well as participating in numerous group exhibitions.

Today, Julia travels to various major U.S. cities throughout spring, summer and fall to show her work at prestigious outdoor art exhibitions. Julia’s work is represented by several U.S. galleries and hangs in a number of private and corporate collections. Home is outside Toronto in the Caledon Hills for Julia, her son Adam and their Border collie, Lucky.
Her next shows (other than here on Liberty Post) are March 6-9 at The Artist Project Toronto and March 14-16 at the Paradise City Arts Festival in Massachsetts.
Which one is your favorite? Perhaps I'll call Julia and ask her if I can do a photoshoot and interview with her. She only lives about 45 minutes from my studio.
