Members are invited to preview the exhibition Julie Speed: East of the Sun and West of the Moon before it opens to the public.

Meet the Artist: Julie Speed at 6:30 PM
Julie Speed has been working as an artist in Texas since 1978, and residing in Marfa since 2006. Her colorful, detailed, and evocative work possesses affinity with the figurative Surrealism of René Magritte, yet suggests scenarios that are simultaneously more personal and more open-ended. This exhibition will feature nearly fifty works of art from the last five years, many never before exhibited, exploring Speed’s mining of Western and Eastern imagery, her combination of structured and spontaneous processes, and her creation of narratives and worlds that ignite the viewer’s imagination.
Support for this exhibition is provided by AT&T, Texas Commission on the Arts and the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation. Educational programming for this exhibition is supported in part by Texas Women for the Arts.
