I'm honored to have one of my paintings included in this exhibition.

Reception: Saturday, May 18, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Objectified: AIB MFA Alumni Exhibition in Cambridge, MA12/25/2012
One of my paintings will be in the upcoming AIB MFA Alumni exhibition, Objectified, in Cambridge, MA.
The exhibit runs from January 4, 2013 to January 12, 2013. Gallery hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

10 Phillips Place
The show catalog can be viewed on Blurb.com.
The theme for this year’s Biennial—“Objectified"—challenges the AIB artists to explore the dynamic
range of power inherent in objectifying a subject or conversely, by focusing intently and decisively on a single object. More than 300 people visited the first MFA Alumni exhibition opening, and the University is expecting this event to be just as spectacularly attended.
The AIB MFA Alumni have orchestrated this group exhibition in cooperation with Lesley University as a
celebration of the diversity and strength of the creative bonds forged in AIB’s intensive low-residency MFA program. This exhibition is also dedicated toward fostering deeper ties between AIB and the main Lesley
University campus as AIB prepares to transition to its new location in Porter Square, Cambridge, MA.

Una Vida Art Project at Factory on 5th11/2/2012
Friday, November 2nd is the opening reception for the Una Vida Art Project at a place that is very special to me: Factory on 5th. Before moving my studio to The Harwood, I had a studio at Factory on 5th. At my studio there, in the bitter cold of January of 2011, I began the current body of work that made up both my MFA thesis exhibit, and is part the work you’ll see at the show this Friday.
So, please join me Friday night, November 2nd from 5:30 to 9:00 pm for the opening reception of Una Vida Art Project at 5G Gallery at the Factory on 5th Art Space.
This group exhibition features a diverse group of seventeen Albuquerque artists (including yours truly) working in oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, metal sculpture, assemblage, and mixed media.

Rise | Set at Harwood Art Center, July 6-26, 20126/27/2012
Rise | Set : Paintings by Jill Christian
Inspired by nuanced light and color in the moments surrounding dawn and dusk, the paintings in this exhibition present fields of brushstrokes that completely fill the canvas with subtly shifting colors. Working within the structure of repetition and reduction, these process-driven, meditative paintings create rhythmic patterns that invite quiet contemplation of their surfaces.
Opening Reception: Friday, July 6, 6:00 - 8:00 pm (in conjunction with ArtsCrawl's First Fridays)
Exhibit Dates: July 6, 2012 - July 26, 2012
