Multi-media artist exhibit at HACC-Gettysburg Campus

Artist reception Oct. 25


GETTYSBURG – “Mytho/Logical,” a new exhibit in the gallery hallway of the HACC- Gettysburg Campus, features the multi-media work of Maryland artist Julie Maynard.
The exhibit will continue through Dec. 14, 2012. A reception for the artist is scheduled for 2:30-3:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012, at the campus, 731 Old Harrisburg Road. The community is invited to meet Maynard and learn more about her work.
            Maynard’s work can be described as a form of painting with paper on two- or three- dimensional surfaces. Her multi-media collages often use advertisements and illustrations torn from magazines and catalogues. They feature gradually built-up layers that incorporate bits and pieces picked up along river and city streets. These ‘found’ objects add texture and shadow lines to her work.
            Many of Maynard’s three-dimensional pieces also begin with a shape from nature, like a bird or a leaf, cut from wood. Second and third layers of wood often include one that is painted and one in an abstract shape.
            To describe “Mytho/Logical,” Maynard said, “Once upon a time, myths were tales we told to explain the world around us. These stories were often populated with animals who took a curious interest in human doings.”
            She added that in her work, “An owl is both a hunter and an observer of the hunt. A cat is both inside the dream and outside watching the dreamer.”
            Maynard’s recent credits include “Train Wrecks,” a one-person show at The Artists’ Gallery, Frederick, Md., and a showing at the 80th Annual Cumberland Valley Artists Exhibition, Washington County Museum of Fine Arts (WCMFA), Md. She won the Maryland Metals, Inc. Cash Award for Outstanding 3-Dimensional/Sculptural Work of Art at the WCMFA show.
            Maynard is a member of The Artists’ Gallery in Frederick. In addition to her career as an artist, she also is editor and publisher of two small weekly newspapers.
            HACC’s art exhibits and receptions are free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.hacc.edu and click on Gettysburg Campus/Events/Arts & Culture or contact Brenda Black at bmblack@hacc.edu.
