Profile of Jill Hoy, one of the state's premier plein air painters, and her husb
Profile of Jill Hoy, one of the state's premier plein air painters, and her husband, Jon Imber, best known for his figurative work. The couple divides their time among an artists' co-op in Somerville, Mass., a cottage in Stonington, and a pied-a-terre in New York. Hoy summered in Deer Isle growing up and started a gallery there, and she now runs the Hoy Gallery in Stonington. New York native Imber began a transition from figurative to landscape painting in the 1980s, which is now nearly complete. Hoy, known for her landscapes, has created a body of narrative figure paintings that Maine audiences rarely see. The two married in 1992 and have an 11-year-old son, Gabriel.
