Julia Scheckel is a printmaker and illustrator based in Milwaukee, WI. She obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art with a concentration in Print and Narrative Forms from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2020.
Her work can be found in the UWM Union Archives, UWM Special Collections, MATC Downtown Campus, and various issues of the Hand Magazine.
Some recent exhibitions include a two-person show at Milwaukee’s Grove Gallery titled Dis/connection, AP3 at MARN: Materiality and Transformation which was a group show at Milwaukee Artist Resource Network’s Arts and Culture Hub, and the 2021 MAPC Members’ Juried Exhibition in Iowa City.
Scheckel has recently been awarded an artist residency with ARTservency, giving her time to explore and create a body of work about Milwaukee’s Lake Park. This will result in a show at Gallery 224 in Port Washington, WI. Scheckel also spends time as a board member for Anchor Press, Paper & Print. This is a non-profit dedicated to opening up a community printmaking studio in the Milwaukee area within the next few years. They currently do community printmaking events with their mobile press while searching for a brick and mortar home.
