Jules Burrowes Paper Artist leads 5:30 Celebrity Tour
- Heron Pond Studio Pawtucket, RI
Jules has maintained Heron Pond Studio for 30 years and produced works for shows and personal enjoyment. She has exhibited in juried shows, one-person exhibits – internationally in Sofia, Bulgaria, and at local art venues for exhibition and demonstration of her art technique. She has contributed to silent auctions and won awards on the boardwalk in New Jersey; Tewksbury, MA; and Bethlehem, PA. Her work has been shown from DC to NH. She has several woodland installations, and has recently been curator of a Textile Show at the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, MA.
Jules has recently added wood sculpture to her more practiced medium of relief printing with wood and linoleum. She also enjoys using the painterly methods for creating monoprints.
Her printed woodcuts start with a drawing, then cutting the design in wood, and finish with a print on paper or cloth, creating three pieces of art each showing a perspective on the original idea. The process has always been distinct steps for Jules which have often left her with at least three works of art along the path to a finished print; the drawing, the block cut, and the print (and often times the fourth dimension is the story that comes with the work!)
Jules loves her art and takes great enjoyment from that which shows up in the world as inspiration for her work.
RI has been home for 5 years and Jules was awarded a RISCA grant in December 2014 to continue teaching in her studio, in particular with a very talented group of Guatemalan Artists. The grant made it possible for the artists to have an open studio exhibition and a two-month show at City Hall. The grant period ended with a one-week show at the Krause Gallery located on the Moses Brown School campus.
Jules will continue to use her studio to teach others about how to find the way to their own creative outlets.
