About

Jill.jpg

The very differences which humanity should embrace are disappearing at a rapid rate.  Why travel anywhere if everything is the same?  My work celebrates the places where, despite modernization, the vibrant simple life continues as it has for generations.  The sun-kissed smile of a fishmonger negotiating the terms of his next sale on the docks; a lone man repairing his weathered boat using techniques his grandfather taught him; a son watching his mother make Argan oil with a slate and her bare hands.  These are the quintessential moments of my travels, the vocations that have existed for thousands of years that are being threatened with extinction.

The American Regionalist painters have fascinated me since I was a child. Benton, Curry, Marsh, Soyer — their works show a simpler America that has been long forgotten. The world is changing and ancient traditions are disappearing rapidly.  In the meantime, I aspire to paint as much of it as possible.

 

All works are available in print form.  Prices vary by size and individual requests.  Please email jill.alexander@gmail.com with any inquiries and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

News and Upcoming Events

Gallery 629.JPG

Jill's work "The Women of the Blue Pearl" has been featured in the Art Educators of New Jersey's 2020 Member Exhibit.

Jill's work appeared on a NJ News Channel 12 feature on the impact the Covid-19 Virus has had on galleries and artists.

 

 

Three of Jill's paintings have been selected to the"Women's Work" exhibition at Gallery 629 in Asbury Park.  The opening reception will be March 7th from 7-10 pm 629 Cookman Ave, Asbury Park. Most artists will be attending the opening, and this event is free and open to the public. The exhibit will be on display from March 7 through April 27.  Gallery hours vary, and it is suggested to call ahead for hours of operation: (908) 278-159

 

This exhibit, titled “Women’s Work” will be a showcase of art in different media from artists across the country. 2020 is the 100-year anniversary of the Suffrage Movement in America. To honor this occasion, most of the art chosen for this exhibit is focused on women’s rights, past and present. This exhibit celebrates women and portrays gender equality as well as gender stereotypes, and brings awareness to oppression and objectification of women which still exists today.
