Westport Book Shop welcomes artist Julie Leff
Westport, Connecticut — The Westport Book Shop is pleased to welcome artist Julie Leff as a guest exhibitor for the month of November at the Book Shop’s Drew Friedman Art Place.
Julie exhibits four vibrant, photorealistic oil paintings with a floral motif. “I paint for myself – for my love of color and form – but in a way that invites others to experience the beauty I see in the world,” Julie said.
Julie studied art at Yale University and the Silvermine Guild of Artists. Her work has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions, most recently at Art/Place in Fairfield. Julie is a member of Westport’s artist collective, WestonArts and Art/Place.
Julie Leff’s works will be exhibited at the Librairie until November 30, 2022. All works exhibited are available for purchase. Notecard boxes containing twelve different images of Julie’s floral oil paintings are also available.
