Bangor, Maine – June 1, 2022
The colorful summer art exhibit at St. Joseph Healthcare has launched with the works of Jill Hoy. A continuation of the St. Joseph Healing Arts program, this new display is now open through September 16, 2022, at The Gallery located at 900 Broadway (Sidney and Helen Epstein Building, building #5).
Artist Jill Hoy’s work focuses on the qualities of Maine light in her plein air oil paintings. Strong composition, rhythm, gesture, pattern, energy, power of place, and soul are primary focal points.
“I’ve spent my summers in Deer Isle, Maine since I was ten years old. Deer Isle has raised me to be a painter,” said Hoy. Reflecting on the exhibit, she shares: “All of my oil paintings are done outside on location. My work captures both an intimate relationship with nature, along with the movements of wide-open spaces that allow our heart to expand.”
Hoy has exhibited her work extensively in Maine and in locations across the United States. You may have seen her work on the cover of an L.L. Bean catalog or a Downeast Magazine publication. Hoy’s work is on display in more than 600 private and corporate collections throughout the United States and Europe, including The Jill Hoy Gallery, which is open for the season in Stonington, Maine.
The St. Joseph Healing Arts Commission selects art that is calming and uplifting, contributing to a peaceful, healing environment for patients and staff alike. This collection by Jill Hoy immerses viewers in the beauty of nature in Maine.
