Painter Julia Jensen offers studio visit on Oct. 21

WESTMINSTER WEST — As part of the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) "Hidden in the Hills" series that celebrates southern Vermont artists, painter Julia Jensen opens her Westminster West studio to the public on Saturday, Oct. 21, at 3 p.m.

Jensen will give visitors a tour of the studio and discuss her work, which she describes as focusing on expressive, dreamlike landscapes that are filled with light and movement.

Jensen divides her time between southern Vermont and Nantucket, and her oil paintings "reflect her deep connection to both regions." In a news release, museum organizers write, "her vibrant yet restrained palette and the quality of light in her paintings recall the Skagen and Funen painters of her ancestral Danish homeland."

Jensen's work is featured in many private and public collections, including those of the state of Vermont, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, and University of Vermont Medical Center. Her work has been exhibited at BMAC, Art at the Kent, the Vermont Arts Council's Spotlight Gallery, and many other institutions. Several of her paintings are currently on display at the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, through the U.S. State Department's Art in Embassies program.

Admission to this event is free for BMAC members and $10 for all others. Space is limited, so registration is required; visit brattleboromuseum.org or call 802-257-0124, ext. 101. The address of the studio will be provided after registration. Refreshments will follow the tour and discussion.
