A Spotlight on Jill Krasner at Chasen Galleries

Arts & Culture


Sarasota-based artist Jill Krasner makes mixed media artwork that cannot be contained to any one style, or subject matter. At our Richmond location you'll find lovely still life paintings full of shapes and patterns, while our Sarasota gallery also has larger-than-life portraits of women, fully abstract squares, and beaches overflowing with greenery. "Making art is my anchor," says Jill. "The process of creating grounds me, keeping me in the moment. There is no past in my studio, no future. There is just now — and now is where I belong, where I do my best work." A little bit of grounding is what we all need right now.

Take a few minutes to check out this week's Spotlight, and maybe absorb some of those calm thoughts and bright inspirations for yourself!
