The Gallery at The Madison is excited to announce its third student art show on April 19 featuring the work of students from the Madison School District. Students who participated in masterclasses taught by Julie Tarsha, a Southwest contemporary artist, will have the opportunity to display their art alongside a professional artist. This is a rare and a unique experience that will create lifetime memories, encouragement, and education in furthering their passion.
Tarsha recently presented her new art exhibition Hidden Colors of the Arizona Desert at The Madison Center for the Arts this past December. In addition to her art exhibition, she taught a masterclass series where she worked closely with art teachers from the district to bring a unique art intensive experience for students of all ages. This included a selection of classes and a group project that every participating student will help create.
Julie Tarsha is a Southwest contemporary artist who was raised in southern California but discovered her love for the desert in her grandparent’s Tucson backyard. She is a current Phoenix resident who practices art full-time in her home studio. When she steps into the studio, she welcomes back her child-like wonderment and freedom that allows her to reveal intriguing connections, hidden meanings and universal truths.
She has dedicated over 20 hours of masterclasses for Madison students teaching and creating expressive art. Through her expressive and color-saturated art, Julie has guided students to reveal and connect their own wonder and truths by exploring marks and colors of expressionism. A chance for students to show their art alongside a professional artist is a unique and rare experience that can create lifetime memories for students and artist.
The exhibit will be open to the public from 5 to 7 p.m. on April 19 and feature an oversized group creation in addition to a fun interactive piece for attendees to participate in. For more information, visit http://www.themadison.org.
