 Jill Keller Peters at The PASSDOOR

Local artist Jill Keller Peters, who has exhibited and sold her impressionist oil landscape paintings at national shows across the United States, is debuting her new, modern, color-inspired art collection on March 1, 2016 at The PASSDOOR modern art gallery in Sebastopol’s new town center, The Barlow. The exhibit will open on March 1st running through April 10, and the artist reception will be held on Saturday, March 19th at 6pm.

Following an exploration into her knowledge of color, Keller Peters is introducing a collection of modern paintings that combine warms and cools, lights and shadow, expressed in color-filled squares. The theme of her exhibit is “Choreography of Color”, an exploration of the rhythms and movements of color created to examine the states of wellbeing and wonder. These paintings are simple, yet complex in the relationship between each carefully chosen color present on the canvas.

“I’m excited about painting and exploring, simply with color. Without subject matter, I have more freedom to wield color that creates depth and movement,” says Keller Peters. “The interaction of color, balance and harmony are truly what drive my work.

“The thread that flows through all my paintings is the idea of conveying the luminosity of God within us all.”

Each color block is masked with tape, and then painted with a freshly mixed oil paint unique in it’s hue. This process can repeat itself numerous times until a harmonious balance is found that is representative of the feeling and emotion Keller Peters is channeling through her art.

“We are thrilled that Jill is going to be debuting her new style of art at our gallery alongside the other carefully selected artists who will be exhibiting,” says Jennifer Edwards, owner of The PASSDOOR. “Each of these artists is unique in their style, focus, and medium, bringing incredible vibrancy and diversity to the gallery floor.”

PASSDOOR Gallery is located at 6780 McKinley St., #150, Sebastopol.
