AND THE WINNER IS......
Since 2015 Julie’s work has been accepted for Mini Print International de Cadaquès a long running exhibition for printmaking and its tendencies. Now in its 41st year the exhibition brings together small works of no more than 10 x 10 cm from over 640 artists worldwide. The exhibition is held during the summer at the Gallery Taller Fort in the beautiful town of Cadaquès on the Northeast coast of Catalunya, Spain. Cadaquès has been, and still is, a huge draw to many artists for many years, Salvador Dali famously made it his home for much of his life and Picasso, Miro and the poet Frederico Garcia Lorca, among many others spent time there.
Julie first visited and fell in love with Cadaquès in 1997 and has returned many times since. Participating in Mini Print was the first very small step in getting her work recognised in the town. Over the years her work has been well received and sold well, the last two years the organisers requested she send more for the exhibition as it tours to Pineda, just north of Barcelona and then to Bages on the coast of the Languedoc Roussillon region of France.
So imagine the joy she now feels to have recently received the news that her piece The Moon and the Poet has been selected as one of the six award winners in this years exhibition! Plus the news that all of the work she sent has been sold and again they need more. The win opens up several opportunities to Julie including, most importantly to her, a solo show of 30 of her Miniprint works in Cadaquès next summer. She will also be one of the judges for next year's exhibition.
