How I Deal: Oil Paintings by Julie Waltz-Stalker

April 9 @ 8:00 am - April 11 @ 5:00 pm

 

How I Deal: Oil Paintings by Julie Waltz-Stalker

The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes
 is pleased to announce Julie Waltz-Stalker’s How I Deal, a new exhibition at the new First Heritage Federal Credit Union Headquarters at 202 Denison Parkway East, Corning, NY! The exhibit will be on view during regular business hours from January 22, 2021 to April 23, 2021.
About The Exhibit:
“Two years into the Trump presidency I started painting flowers as therapy. Life in America had begun to feel like some kind of deadlier, more sinister version of Whack-A-Mole where each day brought multiple new horrors. I was overwhelmed by everything I could not do to stop the onslaught of spite and abuse and unrepentant lies.
It seems silly, but painting flowers brought me happiness. I believe there was power in transforming all that grief, rage, and helplessness into beautiful objects. The meditative act of painting was a way to ease my anxious mind, to step into my power, to shine a small light into the darkness I saw around me.”

*Ten percent of sales from this show will be donated to organizations that fight for social justice
and anti-racism.
