Watercolor, sumi, and collage images of abstracted landscapes, spiritual symbols, and abstract expressions
Jill will be holding a reception in the foyer on Saturday February 4 from 4-6 pm.
Art on Barcelona presents its first exhibit of 2017—Jill Cowley’s “Places of Heart and Mind”— a series inspired by her love of places. By focusing on simple color, she lets the flow of the water and paint or ink help her express how she experiences these places. The sumi landscapes and “Sunset” series are gestural images of imaginary places. Her painted and collage symbols, primarily mandalas, represent strong emotional and spiritual associations.
Jill recently retired as a Cultural Landscapes Specialist with the U.S. National Park Service after 30 years’ helping parks preserve relationships between communities and their special places. Jill has completed a PhD dissertation on Georgia O’Keeffe and Ghost Ranch and has given workshops and presentations at Ghost Ranch, the Petrified Forest National Park and the Georgia O’Keefe Museum.
All sales proceeds will go to UU Santa Fe and local charities.
