Meet Juel Grant

Posted By on Thu, Jan 6, 2011 at 3:58 PM

Back in the days when I was a young intern, I did a story on FrameWorks Gallery and met local artist Juel Grant, who at the time was exhibiting his intricate drawings on eggs. By chance, we met again at an opening last month and caught up. After some correspondence, I've come to know Grant's work much better, and it's impressive. The man can draw on eggs, for goodness sake.

But he's more than a one-note artist: Grant is now showing "sculptural paintings" at the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts, in an exhibit that opens Friday night with a reception from 5-8 p.m. and runs through Jan. 24. Some of the works in this "Elliptiverticus" series are oil on wood, while some are oil on slip cast stone wear.



For more on Grant's art, visit his website I'm especially jazzed by his intimate pencil portraits and his drawings of famous paintings on eggs. Who knew Rogier van der Weyden's "Portrait of a Woman" looked so good on egg?


Or Chief Joseph?
