Colorful Art Exhibition PRESS RELEASE

“Cape Colors” the Art of Julie Olander at Woodruff’s Art Center in Mashpee Commons

July 3 – August 11 “Cape Colors” an exhibit showcasing the art of Julie Olander will be on view at Woodruff’s Art Center in Mashpee Commons. There is an opening reception on Wednesday, July 3rd from 5:00 to 7:00 pm with refreshments and an opportunity to meet the artist.

Known for painting in beautiful color combinations, artist Julie Olander brings local harbors, marshes, bogs, and more to life in a collection of watercolor, oil and acrylic paintings. Design is fundamental in her work and she begins her paintings abstractly then gradually develops the scenes to create a more realistic nature.

Sladeville Marsh, a 22×26 acrylic on canvas is a prime example of a great design; turquoise waters carve their way through a Truro marsh leading the viewer far into the horizon where emerald green grasses meet a luminescent sky. As the water rounds a bend splashes of yellow hint of the warmth of sunshine reflecting off of grasses.

Julie is both an artist and instructor and holds a Masters Degree in Art from Framingham State University. She has received international recognition during over 30 years of painting and teaching. She has studied with Charles Sovek, Sam Barber, Paul George, Janet Rogers, Ron Ranson, Peter Spataro, Charles Reid and Frank Webb, among others. A longtime former resident of Cape Cod, she has recently relocated and resides in Bonita Springs, FL. Woodruff’s Art Center is open Monday through Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 11am-5pm.
