At 11:00 AM, before the noon opening on January 5, there will be a very brief member meeting followed by a gallery talk by Julee Holcombe.
Julee Holcombe was born in Texarkana TX. She grew up in the scenic New England area and in the great Southwest. She received her BFA from the University of New Mexico in Photography and sculpture and later to later receive an MFA in Photography and Electronic Media at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore MD.
Holcombe’s work focuses on the questionability of photography’s truth telling ability in which to distill our sense of time and curiosity. She makes pictures predominantly with digital technology and software applications. Her work is both documentary, fictional, autobiographical, and reflects the world in which we live today. The landscapes she documents can be decades apart or miles apart as then they are re-assembled to create her own mythic reality.
Holcombe’s work has been widely exhibited nationally and internationally, most notably the British Museum of Art in London England; Portland Museum of Art, ME; DeCordova Museum, Lincoln, MA and recently in Phoenix Museum of Art. She is represented by Kayafas Gallery in Boston Mass and most recently had a solo show at the George Marshall Store in York Maine. She has received numerous awards and residencies among them were a full fellowship to Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her photographs are in several private and public collections: the Portland Museum of Art, Fitchburg Art Museum and at the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College.
She is a tenured Professor at the University of New Hampshire and won a Teaching Excellence Award in 2015.
