           Artists Business Digest. Arts and Upstarts, By Morena Media: “Profile of Julie Gladstone”


Julie Gladstone is an artist working in painting, installation and sculpture, currently living and working in Toronto, Canada. Gladstone’s layered and textural abstract oil paintings reconfigure Romantic Landscape painting with a contemporary neo-pop palette and explores our cultures paradoxical relationship to nature as a source of both spiritual renewal and apocalyptic fantasy. Although she is mostly known and collected as an abstract painte, she has recently received media attention for her Extreme Cloud Gazing installation which was featured at Grow-Op Exhibition in the lobby of the Gladstone Hotel and her “Adopt an Extreme Cloud” fundraiser for the David Suzuki Foundation. Creating intersections between painting, sculpture and installation art, her work aims to bring attention to environmental issues like climate change, and explores our culture’s relationship with nature and spirituality. Julie’s work has been supported by the Toronto and Ontario Arts Councils, and she has been awarded the Artscape TOAE Award, The 2015 Canadian Society of Civil Engineers Emerging Artist Award, Sim Residency (Iceland) and Gibraltar Point, Toronto Island. Her work has been included in notable exhibitions at the Department of Canadian Heritage, The Living Arts Centre, The Gladstone Hotel and Canadian Fine Arts Gallery, and she has had solo shows at Walnut Contemporary and Navillus Gallery. Her work is collected in Canada, the US and England. Gladstone carries a BFA from Concordia and is currently the director and curator at Gallery 555 in Toronto.


Julie Gladstone is an award winning emerging artist based in Toronto, Canada.  She received her BFA in painting and drawing from Concordia University in Montreal where she won the Stevenson Scholarship for excellence in painting.  Her work has been featured at the Canadian Department of Heritage in Toronto and has been included in notable Group and Juried exhibitions at The Varley Gallery,  FSU Museum of Fine Arts in Florida, The Haida Museum, LAC Mississauga, and Toronto Pearson International Airport. 

 Julie received an Emerging Visual Arts Grant from the Toronto Arts Council and won the Artscape Award for best of show at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition in 2014.
