Campfire by Julianne Martin, Joint Opening Reception Thursday, August 3, 7:00 pm, on view August 2-30, Gallery: Julianne Martin hopes her viewers will experience her paintings in a way that is similar to looking at the surface of water. From emptiness and depth rushes a true focus. She constructs her paintings on canvas with water and acrylic paint placing value in the unpredictability and purity of water as a tool and material. Ms. Martin teaches at Brookline Art Center, Arlington Center for the Arts and Boston preschools.
