Bernard Chaet (1924-2012) was a renowned artist and educator who was a professor of art at Yale University for nearly forty years.
Rockport and the surrounding area were a continuing source of inspiration for Chaet’s paintings of interiors, still lifes and seascapes. Often portraying the same location repeatedly, he would discover nuances of light, color and atmosphere that were constantly shifting in nature.
Chaet was the author of the seminal book The Art of Drawing. His work has been exhibited widely throughout the U.S. and Japan, and is represented in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Brooklyn Museum, the Chicago Art Institute, and the Hirshhorn Museum among many others.
Jilaine Jones studied at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA, and the New York State College of Ceramics in Alfred, NY. Jones' work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe and she has been awarded many prestigious fellowships and awards including the McDowell Colony Fellowship Residency, Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship, Heliker-LaHotan Foundation Residency, Triangle Arts Association Residencies, and is a Fellowship Recipient for Sculpture through Connecticut Commission on the Arts. Jones currently teaches at the New York Studio School.
