Artist Julie Zenz

I could barely make out the cliffs and ocean below me the night I stopped the car and met Big Sur. Since then, I return often to this magnificent landscape to paint, hike and experience the coast of California.

My painting career started in Lancaster under teachers, Mike Kabele, and Steve Elvidge. After teaching art for 45 years to everyone from kindergarten to college, I have taken up painting in retirement.

I have an MFA in sculpture from the University of South Florida, but oil painting has always been my secret love. Some of my influences are painters: Gerhard Richter, Edward Hopper, and Pierre Bonnard. I learned to appreciate French Impressionists from books in our library. More information about these artists can be found on shelves in the library.

Most of these paintings are for sale. I will donate 20% of the proceeds from this show to Friends of the Library.  You can contact me by email at juleszenz@yahoo.com with questions or more information.

I appreciate the support from our community for visual arts and for the opportunity to display my work in Schreiner Memorial Library.
