Julie Evans (b. 1959) is a native New Yorker who lives and works in Hudson, NY. For the past 25 years, she has been exhibiting her paintings and drawings in the US and abroad. More recently, Evans has turned to ceramic sculpture to further explore her interest in organic form.

Evans’ work questions how the eye constructs meaning and where our thoughts go when we are confronted with uncertainty. She leaves her work open to interpretation, though from an entry point located in an almost-recognizable space. Clarity meets ambiguity, fact meets fiction, and the familiar meets the unfamiliar as Evans mediates discovery, invention, and chance. The confounding moments within Evans’ sculptures slow us down and challenge us to pay closer attention to life’s details.

Evans is the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship to India, as well as residency fellowships to MacDowell, Yaddo, Ucross, Millay, and Tamarind Institute. Evans’ work is included in over 300 international, public and private collections, including The Rubin Museum of Art, US Art in Embassies Program, Microsoft, Progressive Corporation, JP Morgan-Chase, and Pfizer Inc.

Reviews of Evans’ work have appeared in The New York Times, ARTFORUM, Art In America, The New Yorker, Flash Art, TimeOutNY, New York Magazine, and many other publications. Evans’ solo and group exhibitions include those at Julie Saul Gallery, The Brattleboro Museum of Art, The Weatherspoon Art Museum, Wave Hill, Lesley Heller Workspace, Danese/Corey, Jeff Bailey Gallery, LABspace, Zurcher, Gallery, The Dorsky Museum, Geoffrey Young Gallery, Daniel Weinberg Gallery, Esther Massry Gallery, and many others.
