The Sierra College Ridley Gallery presents Ruffle and Fuss, an exhibition of work by Julie Hughes. Through a delicate meticulous handling of materials and subtle color palette, Hughes lures the viewer in only to discover something more perversely pretty, simultaneously inducing both "child-like wonder and grown-up anxiety" through imagery alluding to uncontrollable forces of nature, swarms, and allegorical plagues. This exhibition includes paintings, drawings and collage, and a large-scale installation.
A Los Angeles native, Julie Hughes received her MFA from California State University Northridge in 2004, with an emphasis in painting and drawing. She has exhibited her work across the country, including a 2011 public installation in the Los Angeles International Airport. She is a full-time lecturer in painting and drawing at Santa Clara University. Hughes currently lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.
