Julie Tumblety

Arriving in Los Angeles from New York City, Julie Tumblety used her organizational and management skills to develop and oversee a program at UCLA Extension offering approximately 160 courses in fine art, graphic design and media arts per year for over 14 years. Her understanding of the needs of the marketplace and her contacts in the creative industry allowed her to develop curriculum, track developments in creative industries, identify top talent and place industry professionals as instructors to lead courses designed for undergraduates, graduate students and design/media arts professionals.

In addition, Tumblety developed special events, design studio and advertising agency tours and training programs to address specific market needs in the film industry, (International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees - IATSE); for regional companies (the Los Angeles Times) and international interests (top Tokyo designers and Asian technology corporations). She also helped develop and produce the annual UCLA event marketing programs, Arts Day LA and Careers Day weekends. Tumblety worked closely with Roy Montibon to organize dozens of special programs, seminars, arts events and international symposia. She organized and ran special programs for the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) and the Urban Land Institute in Downtown Los Angeles. Tumblety helped the Visual Arts / Design Communication Arts Department lead the UCLA Professional Development Program towards recognition as the top university extension program in the United States.

Tumblety is also the Co-Founder and Gallery Director of the Royal Mastodon Society gallery, producing several exhibitions including three BFA shows for New Mexico Highlands University Fine Art graduates, the first two graffiti shows in Las Vegas, and two traditional Hispanic arts exhibitions featuring local and regional Santeros, in addition to musical events and the first Artist in Residence program in Las Vegas. In Downtown Los Angeles, she was the owner of Studio 808, where she produced a number of live music events and group exhibitions featuring several downtown artists. She was also the Founding Co-Producer of the Artwalk in Downtown Los Angeles. She currently serves on the Mayor's Film Commission for Las Vegas, New Mexico.

Tumblety helped to coordinate SPACE New Mexico (Special Projects in Art, Culture and Education) events with Roy Montibon and was the Co-Producer of the Old Bank District Artwalk in Downtown LA.

As an art director, a trained actress and professional voice-over artist, Tumblety is very familiar with the professional design, fine art, film, theater and media arts communities and has a sophisticated aesthetic sensibility that comes out of years of direct experience in those areas. She is also an animal rights activist and experienced cat wrangler.
