BARNEGAT – The Barnegat Branch of the Ocean County Library will host “A Legacy of Loss: An Exhibition of Endangered Species Art” by artist Jill DeFelice throughout the month of November.
Jill DeFelice is a primarily self-taught artist, painting mainly in oils. She first started painting in 2001. In 2003, DeFelice relocated to Hong Kong and China, continuing her art education. Her works are in private collections worldwide, including New York, Moscow, Saudi Arabia, Beijing, Toronto, Brisbane, and Hong Kong.
“I want my paintings to look like I have had a hand in their creation,” DeFelice says, “I use texture, brushwork, and vivid color to reflect my personal connection to the subject. For me, these are always important elements of my paintings.”
Any sales are to be arranged through the artist. 10% of all sales go to a local food pantry.
The branch is located at 112 Burr Street.
Registration is not required to view the exhibit. Call the branch at 609-698-3331 for any additional information.10-29-endangered.pdf
