Landscapes by Jill Quadagno
The Artwork of Jill Quadagno
Jill Quadagno finds inspiration for her paintings in the north Florida landscape with its brilliant light, lush flora and picturesque salt marshes and tide pools. Her paintings depict scenes along the "forgotten" coast from the tiny fishing village of Appalachicola to the unspoiled dunes on the barrier island of St. George to the meadows and farms found along the roads of the rural South. Her travels to North Carolina are reflected in her paintings of the mountains, fields and rocky streams. Jill’s paintings are in private collections around the country and currently hang in the offices of the Florida Capitol, the Tallahassee City Commission, and the National Academy of Social Insurance in Washington, D.C. Three of her paintings of Maclay gardens will be on exhibit at the Jefferson Arts Gallery, Sept. 5-30. The exhibit, The Way We See It, features art by women of north Florida.
