Tim Lowly

I’ve known Tim for a few years now. He is a gentle soul, only says what is necessary, and what he does speak says volumes. I believe the same goes for his work. He is an instructor and North Park University in Chicago and many of his paintings revolve around his daughter, Tema. I especially enjoy his large scale detailed paintings which evoke such a sense of beauty, calmness, and solitude.

You really should look at these in larger detail on his website: and his flickr site:

JennyBird Alcantara

Hailing from San Francisco, CA, illustrator JennyBird Alcantara “explores the complex interconnectedness of opposites as seen through the prism of myth, fable and fantasy.” Her work, dark and mysterious, includes figures from a long list of inspirations including “the flora and fauna of the natural world and freaks of nature, folk art, costuming, creepy religious statues and paintings, and objects out of place.”

The following images are select works of her oil paintings on wood. She also makes art dolls inspired by these paintings. To see more of her work visit her website at

About Us

Fill in the Blank Gallery was formed out of the desire to create a space where art can be presented, discussed, created, performed, written, shared, and taught on an accessible level. Our goal is to foster creativity in our community, which is so full of talent but perhaps lacking in creative outlets. Part artist collective, part gallery, we feature a wide range of artistic works each month including fine art, craft, film, and music.
