Julianna Kirwin

I have always loved printmaking with my training as an artist largely taking place in Guanajuato and Oaxaca, Mexico. A Masters Degree in Art/Bilingual Education at UNM enabled me to teach art in the public schools for 12 years and conduct workshops in bilingual settings like The International Folk Art Museum and the Cultural Center in Guanajuato.

Please visit my studio located at 1201 8th St. NW which is open each Saturday from noon to 4pm and by appointment. SEE MAP. You’ll also see my project funded by City of Albuquerque Public Art, Banners on Mountain Road, along our Mountain Road Arts Corridor between 5th and 12th streets.


“Babcia” at Hecho a Mano Gallery in Santa Fe

So excited for my show at Hecho a Mano, 129 W Palace Ave, Santa Fe! The show is dedicated to my Polish Grandmother, Babcia. Her cooking was our “language” and our way of communicating since she only spoke Polish. Making traditional Polish food together was a hands-on learning experience that contributed to my eventual love of printmaking. Her colorful tables, her personal style of dress and long hair, her neighborhood designated as “Little Poland” were so interesting to me as a child. Hope you can come see the show!
