The Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council is showcasing the husband and wife duo of artists, Jillian and James Zamora. The couple is displaying an impressive array of their works at the CTFAC River North Gallery.
Jillian, a photographer specializing in wedding photography, has four pieces in the exhibit. James, who uses acrylics as his medium, is a master at photorealism, an artistic style that depicts common subjects in meticulous detail. Nine of his pieces are presented.
CTFAC executive assistant Clint Billingsley said he is impressed with James' talent.
“It's definitely the most realistic work I have seen among that style of painting. You'd never know each piece wasn't a photograph,” Billingsley said.
Executive Director Julie Crouch was equally amazed at Tolar native Jillian's ability to bring her subjects to life.
“She has a great eye for finding the extraordinary in the ordinary,” Crouch said.
The event was officially kicked off Thursday with a reception provided by Scott's Flowers on the Square.
The exhibit will continue through Aug. 25. Hours and days for viewing are Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The gallery is also open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3. p.m. Admission is free.
All of the Zamora pieces are for sale.
