Commissioned Paintings of Your Beloved Home to Feed the Homeless
 
   

Jill Karlin tells The Rickie Report, ” The first ‘House Portrait’ I painted was of a family home ‘The Captain Fisher House’, on North Water Street in Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard.  I had many happy memories in the sea-captain’s House, which my great Uncle Marty had purchased over 100 years ago for $5,000 and turned into a boarding house.  When he met and married Polly they made it their home and an Inn for ‘the summer people’, who came to visit Martha’s Vineyard”. 

 

“Captain Fisher House” by Jill Karlin

 

   
Jill’s paintings take on deeper meanings, as her story unfolds.  She and her younger sister had a bedroom on the third floor during off-season and during summers they lovingly shared the basement with Uncle Marty, Aunt Polly and the dogs.  “My parents were always the guests of honor, inhabiting the master bedroom suite with the great views of Edgartown Harbor.  (Even though our third floor tiny room with low peaked ceilings had even better views.)  I needed to memorialize these happy memories.”

 

“911 North Ocean Palm Beach” by Jill Karlin

 

   Jill  captured these fond memories while she was a student at Rhode Island School of Design, when she summered on the Vineyard, as she taught  art at Nathan Mayhew Seminars, and on her own.  A neighbor on North Water Street, wanted one for herself.  Jill’s career of painting buildings centered in a painting , with a painted border patchwork quilt of the stories about the people and the building began!  

“Flagler House” by Jill Karlin

 

   
Jill reminisces, ” I had borrowed the idea from my Mom, who is an artist and needle crafter.  She created a crewel work piano bench in which she depicted all of my family’s professions and hobbies.  Our home was represented in the center of the artwork.  And then, Jill asks a central question, “What about this who do not have a home?”

 

 

 

 

The statistics concerning homelessness in the United States are staggering.  More shocking are the number of children who are homeless.  Jill reflects, “All of this is deeply ironic, because I was married to the father of Environmental Architecture, Lee Porter Butler, and together we created ‘EKOTECTURE’, a system to provide all people on earth, safe, affordable sustainable housing.”

 

 

This exhibition celebrates the structures we build and the way that each one is used.  The community’s goal is not only to feed the homeless but to listen to their stories with compassion. Together we must strive to create a situation where all are cared for.
