Jel Ena Los Angeles CA

Lea Barozzi Portland OR

Patricia Ariel Seattle WA

Amy Katherine Minchew Atlanta GA

Amber Michelle Russell Eau Claire WI

Jessica Ward Manistee MI

Kim Gordon San Francisco CA

our in house Featured artist Amy Weber will have new paintings in watercolor and oils to round out this fantastic showing!


Julie Luke is an emerging visionary artist based out of Tacoma, Washington. She creates whimsical spiritual paintings that evoke her ideals of being boundless and one with spirit. She uses bold patterning, and intense contrast to express her distinct works of art. Julie’s works have been exhibited in galleries and art venues throughout the Pacific Northwest, including a commission for the private gallery of the Dr.Martens U.S. Headquarters in Portland, Oregon.

Born on June 18, 1980 in Port Angeles, Washington, Julie was the eighth of nine children, and formal art culture was not accessible to her as a child. She began creating time based ecological art at the age of five years old and began to educate herself in painting when she was fifteen. Julie’s artistic beginning evolved from an innate means to express her distinctive voice amongst a repressive environment. Julie states that the world she would travel to while creating was pure and loving full of otherworldly expression and freedom. Her inherent talent to express and create was influenced by her father, who was a self taught blue collar artist; Julie’s father is still her favorite artist and key inspiration to date.

Julie never imagined her art would later bring her a life as a professional artist, but blissfully welcomes the many exciting and healing opportunities it brings. Julie is currently working on several bodies of art, including The re-calibration of light and dark 2012.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Curated by Stephanie Chefas


Opens Saturday, February 23rd, 2013 7-10pm


To request an online preview, please email [email protected]



On Saturday, February 23rd, Cella Gallery is delighted to present Something Wicked This Way Comes, a provocative group exhibition featuring multiple works from 10 innovative artists handpicked by Contemporary Art Curator, Stephanie Chefas.


A celebratory mix of the surreal and macabre, Something Wicked This Way Comes, delves the senses into ominous worlds and forsaken dreams. The exhibit is a composition of some of the most powerful contemporary artists whose inherent aesthetic is both visually rebellious and viscerally seductive. "Each artist was chosen based on their dark allure and ability to transform what naturally repels us into something utterly captivating," states Chefas. "By consistently pushing conventional norms, these artists are simultaneously challenging the viewer as well as themselves."


Through an assemblage of mixed media works, oil paintings, watercolor and graphite drawings, Something Wicked This Way Comes features the talent of Annie Owens, Christian Rex van Minnen, Christine Wu, Chrystal Chan, David Ball, Fulvio Di Piazza, Jana Brike, Jessica Ward, Judith Supine, and Michael Page. Expect to feel the hairs on your neck stand straight up; for something wicked this way comes.
