Faculty & Staff
Julie Langsam is a painter whose work explores the notion of the sublime within the context of utopian/dystopian ideas about modernist 'progress' and societal ideals. These underlying themes are present in works that employ a range of genres, methods and materials. Langsam recently completed a 15,000 mile road trip documenting the American landscape which is the basis for a new body of work. Recent exhibitions include “Tomorrowland” at Gallery Thomas Jaeckel in NYC and “Revisiting Paradise” at SUNY Purchase. She is the recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award and is represented in collections throughout the United States. Among Langsam's other activities she is curator of such exhibitions as “Color as Structure” at Frederieke Taylor Gallery in NYC and “The Big Bang” at SPACES Gallery in Cleveland, OH. Langsam is currently Associate Professor of Drawing at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers and was former Motto Endowed Chair and Head of Painting at the Cleveland Institute of Art. She is represented by Gallery Thomas Jaeckel in NYC.
