Artist Lecture: Julia Jacquette at Opalka Gallery

Tonight (Dec. 7) at 6:30 PM, Albany’s Opalka Gallery will host Julia Jacquette–a New York City-based artist who draws largely from advertising and contemporary media as inspiration for her series of vibrant, detailed paintings. Her work aims to expose “our seemingly insatiable longing for a life that is purely a construct of the advertising industry,” with subjects that range from 1950s cookbook recipes to motel swimming pools, zooming in on and dissecting the objects of lifestyle magazines and luxury ads.

Check out her other collections, such as playground of my mind.
