Julianna Swaney art show at the Blackbird Attic

[BA PRESS] Blackbird Attic, a consignment boutique in Beacon, N.Y., is hosting an art show featuring artist Julianna Swaney. The show, entitled "Runaways", will open on Saturday, August 7 at 6pm and will run until September 4. Opening night will feature music, appetizers and wine until 9pm. Swaney, who currently lives in Portland, Oregon, grew up in rural Michigan. Her childhood was spent playing in the woods behind her home, an activity that cultivated her love for animals. Since receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in printmaking from the Maine College of Art in 2005, Swaney has shown her work in cities nationwide, from Los Angeles to New York City.

Julianna says "I'm very inspired by old prints, illustrations and ephemera, like postcards, I have nostalgia for a time when people wore hats." Her artwork usually consists of pencil and watercolor on paper and reflects her interest in nature, magic and history. This art show furthers Blackbird Attic's objective to contribute to the growing arts scene in Beacon.
