Artist Masterclass: Juliacks
Tuesday December 4: 7:00-9:00pm
Free with online RSVP
Following a presentation of Juliacks’ most recent projects, workshop participants will do a variety of trans-media art exercises, using their body, drawing, painting and writing to uncover meaning with symbols, storytelling, fantasy, and their subconscious.

Juliacks works with the material of analog trans-media fiction through comics, film, performance-installations, theater, paintings and tapestries.

A recipient of the Fulbright Fellowship, and the ENSBA-Lyon, Néon, LA BOX, De Ateliers residencies and grants, Juliacks received a 2016 Fellowship for Painting from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and a 2017 Mondrian project investment grant for her ongoing project, Transversal Scepters.
