Contact Julie Martini

Julie Martini is a visual artist based in Boston, MA. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art at Carleton College and her MFA in 2D Fine Arts at the Massachusetts College of Art & Design. She works in drawing, painting, and installation. Her art explores the relationship between science, nature, and the sacred. Julie is represented by Uprise Art in New York. Increasingly, her practice has included work in the public and community art realms. She recently worked with over 200 children to create a collaborative large-scale installation called “Building with Light” that explored light through the lenses of science and art. The installation was exhibited at The Museum of Fine Arts from May - October 2017. Martini has also shown her work at Gallery 263 in Cambridge, the Massachusetts College of Art, and the Mills Gallery at the Boston Center for the Arts. In 2014, she was a Finalist for a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship. She has received residencies at I-Park, the Petrified National Forest, the Women’s Studio Workshop, and the Vermont Studio Center.  She began teaching at Curry College on a part-time basis in 2014. She has also taught at Endicott College and the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. In addition to teaching, she has dedicated her career to bringing visual art to underserved segments of the Boston community at the Pine Street Inn for the Homeless, Barbara McInnis House, and Artistic Noise.
