“Turkey Feathers” by Jill Petrilak, oil on canvas

Jill Petrilak portrays her subjects in a traditional style, yet not traditional poses; people from among her circle of friends at moments in their lives.

Jan Magdaleno chooses subjects from the human and animal worlds, working with charcoal, watercolor or acrylic; whichever medium gives the most life to her figures.
