Julie McIntyre: Collecting Stories
Thursday, February 06, 2014 ― Thursday, March 20, 2014
“Collecting Stories” celebrates activities for which we choose to spare time for, that are initiated for pleasure and enrich our lives without concern for financial compensation. This series is also homage to hobbyists whose commitment and accomplishments are unfairly dismissed as “amateur” precisely because they are not concerned with monetary gain. We should not discount their developing techniques and often life-long learning that follows their passion, nor their financial contributions.
Julie McIntyre studied at the Banff Centre, Alberta in 1986 and received her BFA from Queen’s University with a major in printmaking. She has had solo shows in 18 public galleries in Canada and participated in well over 40 juried exhibitions, including 21 international credits to date. Julie has taught workshops across Canada and is an artist in residence with the Vancouver School Board and ArtStarts.
