May At Bridge Productions: Julie Alpert, Garbled Love Letters says

11 MAY - 4 JUNE


We are delighted to present Seattle artist Julie Alpert’s solo exhibition, Garbled Love Letters, at Bridge Productions this May. The prominent feature of Garbled Love Letters will be three large pieces in painting and collage from her Bows and Drips series. Each piece overflows with colorful bow-ties, ribbons, and bursts of pattern; literally dripping with bright paint and ornamentation. Also featured is an installation of small, intimate watercolors floating across the length of a wall - the series this exhibition is named after. This body of small works pairs loose, airy, asemic writing and rhythmic repetition; articulating nonsensical language and playful patterns, as well as invented and actual symbols.

Julie Alpert is a Seattle-based installation artist and painter with an MFA from the University of Washington and BA from the University of Maryland. She is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Award, two MacDowell Colony Fellowships, a VCCA Fellowship, The New Foundation Grant, two GAP grants and was a finalist for the 2013 Neddy Awards. In summer 2015, Julie was included in a limited survey of Pacific Northwest artists in the renowned Out of Sight exhibition at King Street Station, which corresponded with the first inaugural Seattle Art Fair. At the same time, she was commissioned by the Seattle Art Fair to create a 54-foot installation at MadArt. In addition to her installation practice, Julie often collaborates on animation and performance with her husband, Andy Arkley, of the art collective LET’S and the band The Bran Flakes.
