Montréal-based artist Julianna Joos has been a printmaker for 40 years and has spent the past 13 years focusing on fibre-art production, including digitally-created Jacquard weavings, digital printing on fibre and wearable art.

Now she's making a special trip to stage her North/South Stories exhibition - including etchings and weavings - at the CQUni Noosa Art Space (at 90 Goodchap Street, Noosaville) from 8-21 December.

All interested people are welcome to attend an artist talk by Julianna Joos from 3 pm on Friday 8 December, followed by the exhibition launch from 4.30 pm that afternoon. Details: .

CQUni Creative Industries Lecturer Dr Liz Ellison says the perspectives on Julianna's work "will be interesting to consider alongside the challenges facing our own emerging practitioners in our local region".

"CQUni Noosa invited Julianna to exhibit her work as a result of her international profile in weaving and etchings," Dr Ellison says.

"She has previously exhibited in Queensland, and we are excited to host her work again in the southern hemisphere. Her work feels like a good fit for the region because of her interest in the natural environment."

Julianna says she is coming to Noosa especially for the exhibition and to expand her experience of the arts, art making and art teaching.

"Exhibiting at the CQUniversity Noosa Art Space gives me both the opportunity to promote my artworks, Jacquard weavings and original prints, and to appreciate the pedagogy of the Arts programs, while interacting with students and faculty on campus," she says.

* Julianna Joos has presented over 20 solo exhibitions. Her works have been selected for more than 200 international juried group shows, in printmaking and textiles. She has completed a Master’s degree, an MFA, at the Université du Québec à Montréal (1996) and presently teaches printmaking, drawing, and digital art at Dawson College. She has won two major international prizes in printmaking:

  • 2005 Purchase Award Premio Consorzio Brachetto d’Acqui: VIIème Biennale Internazionale dell’Incisione, ACQUI TERME, Italy
  • 2002 First Prize VOIR GRAND, Biennale d’estampe grand format de l’Atelier Circulaire, MONTRÉAL, Quebec, Canada
