Gallery 527 announces a new exhibition, “Choose What You Create” – all new work by Julie Bernstein Engelmann, opening Oct. 7 from 5-8 p.m.

Each of Engelmann’s dramatic abstract paintings embodies a quality she chooses to create in her life. 

Engelmann’s lush abstracts have won numerous awards. She was honored with a retrospective exhibit, Being Spirit, at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Altoona, Pennsylvania.

Site Coordinator Barbara Hollander stated, “Julie Bernstein Engelmann combines passages of poured and brushed paint that remind one of stained glass creations.

“Her technique relies partly on many years of study and partly on an intuitive, creative interaction with what she refers to as the painting spirit.

“The resulting works are spiritually resonant and ineffably uplifting.”

Engelmann holds an MFA from UCLA and a BA from Barnard College, where she studied with Milton Resnick, first-generation Abstract Expressionist.

She teaches Luscious Abstractions on the faculty of the Sedona Arts Center School of the Arts. “Choose What You Create” will be on view at Gallery 527 in Jerome through Dec. 29.
