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.
Most recently, Scheckel participated in a two-person show, Dis/Connection, at Milwaukee’s Grove Gallery. Other recent exhibitions include a group show, AP3 at MARN: Materiality and Transformation, 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, for which she will 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 a community printmaking studio in MIlwaukee within the next few years.
Scheckel’s first solo exhibition will be held at the Pump House Regional Arts Center in La Crosse, WI. Its title, The Woods are Lovely, Dark and Deep, is a reference to Robert Frost’s poem "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening". The show will be open July 20th- September 10th, 2022, with a reception on August 5th from 5-7pm.
