Flowers, Hearts, and Things That SOAR - Julie Walton Radtke - Paper Cutting Exhibition
Please note, this event has expired.
We’re opening two new exhibitions, “Flowers, Hearts, and Things That SOAR,” featuring the work of Julie Walton Radtke, in our Miller Gallery, and “Art Designed by Nature,” featuring the work of Staci Doucett, in our Higby Gallery.
“Flowers, Hearts, and Things That SOAR”
Julie Walton Radtke moved to Panama City shortly before Hurricane Michael and we’re so happy she joined our community! Her unique style of paper-cutting, often featuring flowers, hearts, and insects, sets her apart from other paper artists, and even won a Merit Award at the 56th Bay Annual Competition a few months ago.
What’s even better than an awesome paper-cutting art show? One that comes to life with projections of flying butterflies and dragonflies courtesy of the Public Eye SOAR team. Come see the projection and paper cutting magic in our Miller Gallery.
MORE ABOUT JULIE
Julie has created art all her life. Traveling and living all over the world to gain inspiration from other cultures, she’s dabbled in a lot of mediums. It wasn’t until eight years ago that she found her favorite style of art: paper cutting. Paper cutting has the white on white look she loved from her work in fabric art, and it allows her to use her building skills like when she worked in 3D art. In fact, she draws a lot of inspiration from people who do traditional paper sculpture because they use many of the same techniques she does, just on a much larger scale.
You can find her most days at CityArts Cooperative using her training as a creativity coach to help others find their passion, or cutting paper into whimsical things like little baby carriages, ice-cream cones, and cupcakes. Most of her work, though, is floral. And if you look closely, you’ll find little bees and dragonflies hidden among the flowers—like a botanical “Where’s Waldo”.
Come see the humor of nature and the serenity of paper cutting in our two newest exhibitions open from 6pm on July 12 to closing on August 9.
