The April Artist of the Month at the Dunmore Senior Center is a “real artist,” oil painter and instructor Jill Swersie, who has been painting professionally for over 30 years.
Her work has been exhibited in art galleries and at shows in New York City, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Colorado. As part of Project Street Art, her mural “Art of the Dance” can now and forever be seen in downtown Stroudsburg. Jill was one of five artists selected for Adams Outdoor Advertising’s ArtPop Exhibition, and a larger-than-life copy of her oil painting “Man’s Best Friend” can now be seen on a billboard in the Pocono Mountains.
Jill has taught adult art classes at Northampton College’s Tannersville campus and for the past 20 years has been teaching at the Dunmore Senior Center.
