News from Jill Christian Studio

Kennedy's Pond, acrylic on canvas, 44"x42", 2017 (HOME exhibition)

It's been a while since I've sent out an email update.  To keep it short and sweet, 2017 was a whirlwind with lots of positive activities and some changes in my studio.  I do want to share with you a few events coming up in the next few months.  If you are in Albuquerque, I hope to see you at one of these (or other!) events.  Wishing you all a beautiful fall season!

Please feel free to contact me by phone (505) 379-9836 or email ( for a studio visit, to find out more about my work, or just to say "Hi".

Warm regards,


HOME: a s(and) Exhibition

Home is both a place and a space in our minds. Home can refer to the intimacy of our domestic spaces, the specificity of a geographic location, the nostalgia that is recalled by our five senses, and a place of refuge and safety that exists among family, friends, and community. In this exhibition, a group of 12 Albuquerque artists from the s(and) Collective share creative expressions of their notions of home, within the context of their work together as artists.

s(and) artists in this show are Lea Anderson, Angela Berkson, Jill Christian, Stephanie Lerma, Jessamyn Lovell, Kelly Eckel, Dana Kleinman and Ruth Avra, Valerie Roybal, Cedra Wood, Rachel Popowcer, Heidi Pollard, and Shawn Turung.
