Beverly Bryant - September 5, 2019 9:16 am
Julianne Clark of Tulsa has been selected as the 2019 Ponca City Arts Festival juror.
Clark is a practicing teaching artist currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography at the University of Tulsa. In 2008, she achieved a Cum Laude Bachelor of Arts in Photography with a secondary emphasis in Ceramics at the University of Arkansas. She also holds minors in Psychology and Art History.
Clark taught Visual Art and Photography in Oklahoma public schools for seven years, and was recognized as the Oklahoma State Art Educator in 2016. Currently, she holds professional positions as a teaching assistant at the University of Tulsa, and as the Education Organizer at Living Arts of Tulsa. She volunteers with many regional and national arts organizations, including the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition and the Society for Photographic Education.
Her personal work often questions the reality of photography as a representation of truth. On a broader scale, Clark questions reality and its many truths on a daily basis. She looks to art as a means of both examining and celebrating this quandary.
The Ponca City Arts Festival will take place Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on the historic ground of the Soldani Mansion, 819 East Central Ave. The Ponca City Arts Festival will feature more than 20 visual artists from around the country, including painters, sculptors, jewelers and a variety of other artisans.
