Julie Green (b.Yokosuka, Japan) wanted to be a stewardess until age four, but became a painter instead. Green’s work has been featured in The New York Times, a Whole Foods mini-documentary, National Public Radio, Ceramics Monthly, Gastronomica, and A World of Art, published by Prentice Hall. She has exhibited widely in the United States and internationally, and is a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant and recent winner of the ArtPrize 3-D Juried Award. Half of each year, usually in winter months, she works on The Last Supper, an ongoing project about the death penalty in the United States. Green, a professor at Oregon State University, is represented by Upfor Gallery.
Student Teacher: Green’s teaching philosophy reads the teacher is also the student. In a fully collaborative effort, several Oregon State University graduating students will select works by Julie Green for the exhibition. In turn, Green will select student works to include. They will travel and install together. Student Teacher examines reciprocity.
