The Artist Guild Gallery of Greenville welcomes September guest artist Julia Peters. An artist reception will be held in the gallery on Friday, September 2nd from 6-8 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
Julia Peters began her art career working at the Greenville County Art Museum, which was located at the time in the Gassaway mansion on Greenville’s DuPont Drive. Working with the museum fueled an interest in the visual arts and caused her to realize that she could draw whatever she could see. Julia quickly learned and experienced the joy of mixing paint, blending colors, applying them to a surface and producing recognizable images. She began to share these talents by teaching others.
Julia was invited to teach classes Tempo Art Gallery in downtown Greenville, SC and taught with Tempo Gallery for twenty-three years.
Julia has worked and studied with Jeanne Dobie, Beverly Grantham, Alex Powers, Frank Webb, Skip Lawrence, Stephen Quiller and Dale Latinen along with many other artists during her career. Julia works primarily with watercolors and oils. Her work has been commissioned by both residential and corporate clients.
Today, Julia has her own studio where she teaches her craft to others and provides framing services and display space for local artists. Julia usually conducts a trip every other year for students to paint and experience the atmosphere of such places as California, England, Italy, Ireland, etc. You can visit with her at 10 CENTRAL AVENUE STUDIOS, 10 Central Ave., Greenville, SC.
