The collective work, on display, explores the usage of natural light that brings each painting to life. With summer just around the corner, Jill's warm, vivid and playful  palette is the perfect compliment to the energetic atmosphere to Davis Square

About the Artist

Jill Hoy earned a B.F.A. from the University of California at Santa Cruz and also attended the New York Academy of Art in New York City. Her work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the country. The exhibition's title Jill Hoy: Maine/Manhattan refers to the two bodies of work she creates, those painted on location and others done in her studio from imagination and recollections. The artist divides her time among residences in Stonington, Maine, Somerville, Massachusetts, and New York City. The work she creates in Maine is inspired by direct observation of the landscape and includes seascapes, architecture, and gardens. The artist, working on location, is especially interested in the effects of natural light, color, and pattern.
