  • Exit Through the Gift Shop
    Exit Through the Gift Shop
    When British stencil artist Banksy traveled to Los Angeles to work, he came across obscure French filmmaker Thierry Guetta and his badly organized collection of videotapes involving the activities of graffiti artists. Inspired, Banksy assembled them with new footage to create this talked-about documentary, and the result is a mind-boggling and odd film (so strange as to be thought a hoax by some) about outsider artists and the definition of art itself.
  • The Impressionists

Jill’s NEW 2018 Winter Classes! Mark Your Calendars…

(Click Image for full sized flyer)This Winter I’ll be offering new painting and art history classes in Ossining, NY! 

“What Am I Lookin’ At” is a series of six (6) classes on Modern Art. Modern Art (with a capital M and a capital A) refers specifically to the art created by members of the avant-garde during the period from 1900-1945. In this series of programs, we'll explore the seeds of Modern Art and each of the major movements. Gain a better understanding of what inspired them, how to “read” them, and where they led. Our SIX (6) classes will focus on: The Seeds of Modernism, Fauvism, Cubism, Expressionism, Dada, and Surrealism. 

You can register on a class-by-class basis ($30 each) OR register for the whole series ($150).

Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 PM, at the OAC Steamer Firehouse, 117 Main St., 2nd Floor, Ossining, NY. We’ll meet weekly from January 23rd through February 27th, 2018
