Jill Thompson: Introduction of New Work

29 April - 13 May 2017

Jill Thomson's artwork invokes her personal history of a small town/prairie childhood, an urban Montreal young adulthood and a settled life as artist and mother of three in Edmonton.

Homes, neighbourhoods and all the intimate intricacies thereof are captured by the imaginative brush of Edmonton artist Jill Thomson, the next featured artist in Gibson Fine Art’s continuing series.

Thomson is a small-town prairie girl who received her fine arts degree at Concordia in Montreal, and has since settled in Edmonton. Each of these environments has impacted her painting. With colourful flourishes of her brush on canvas, she depicts not only residences but the cultural and natural milieus that grace and shape their inhabitants.

Come witness for yourself Thomson’s compelling interpretations of place and time!
