Jane Dill’s Crosses of San Miguel Opens at Galeria San Francisco

By Susan Santiago

Please join us for the opening reception for artist Jane Dill’s new exhibit, Crosses of San Miguel, at the Galeria San Francisco’s Annex at the Fabrica la Aurora Art Walk. The show opens on Saturday, July 7 at 5pm in conjunction with the monthly Art Walk.

Dill is a mixed-media artist in San Miguel whose work combines texture, color, calligraphy, and photo collage. As an abstract artist, she was looking for an element to put in her work that people could recognize. For her new series, Crosses of San Miguel, Jane was inspired by images of crosses in iron, wood, stone, and cement. By taking photos all over town, she’s been able to use the cross not just as a religious icon but as a design element to experiment with, using abstraction, layering, and collage.

She also works with plaster and texture in her art, combining that with her cross imagery. She finds that enlarging some of the images turns them into texture themselves. Calligraphy also adds an element to the art. Jane has been a professional calligrapher for over 30 years and uses both classic hand lettering and wild “asemic” writing in her new work.

Dill also teaches classes at the Galeria San Francisco’s Art Workshop space in Centro. Her popular classes include mixed-media techniques, collage, color and symbols, and abstract painting with texture. They range from one day to two days.
