Soon to Launch - The Island Project

by Jill Austen on 01/11/16

After celebrating the completion of The 365 Series with a few days of well-earned rest, I tackled the enormous job of cleaning and re-organizing my studio. I'm just about ready now to hit the road for "The Island Project", my new focus for 2016 and beyond. Lucky me, I will embark on a series of island residencies and adventures worldwide, creating art in response to each location. Bound for The Bahamas in a few days!

In Harlem, New York can enjoy some of my earlier tropical fauna and flora paintings on exhibit from mid-January at Citibank on 2481 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd at 142nd Street.
