McHenry County College is hosting an exhibit titled re | process by artist Julie Weber ’06 through Sept. 9 in its art galleries on the Crystal Lake campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Julie is a Chicago-based visual artist and educator working conceptually within the framework of photography. She is interested in how images take form and materialize into physical objects. Predominantly cameraless, Julie’s work considers how materials can image themselves by depicting their own process.

In re | process, Julie works with exhausted spools of thin, transparent polyester-coated with heat-sensitive cyan, magenta, and yellow dyes: the process behind one-hour photo labs. Julie’s recent solo exhibitions include re | process at The Alice Wilds (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) and re | materialize at Seerveld Gallery (Palos Heights, Illinois).

Julie’s work has been featured nationally in exhibitions at SF Camerawork (San Francisco, CA), Cressman Center for Visual Arts (Louisville, KY), photo-eye Gallery (Santa Fe, NM), Silver Eye Center for Photography (Pittsburgh, PA), and more. Her limited-edition artist book, "REMNANTS," was published by Skylark Editions (2017).

Julie received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dominican University (2006) and earned a Master of Fine Arts in Photography from Columbia College Chicago (2014). She has taught at Dominican University, Northern Illinois University, Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, Columbia College Chicago, and Waubonsee Community College.
