Jill Halliday at Old Union Chapel

About Jill Halliday


Jill studied Stage Design at the National Institute for Dramatic Art where she first started learning about scenic art and painting on various surfaces. Since graduating as a Stage Designer from NIDA in 1980, Jill has designed many sets, props and costumes throughout Australia. She also studied Applied Design – Interactive Multimedia and did post graduate studies in Festival and Event Management and Design at Flinders University. All these studies enriched her passion for the creative arts.

It was only in mid 2022 she started painting canvases which she embraced. Early in 2023 she and her sister had their first exhibition of stylised, semi-abstract landscapes which was well received.

Jill successfully entered artworks in various exhibitions throughout 2023 including Pepper Street’s Fringe Art Exhibition and Pepper Street’s SALA Exhibition. She was also fortunate in being nominated as a Finalist in the 2023 ‘All Connections To Unley’ Art Prize. In the latter half of 2023 Jill once again exhibited with her sister, at Gallery 54 in Penola.

Jill enjoys painting stylised, semi-abstract evocative interpretations of the world around her, focussing on shapes, minimal line & crisp, bold colours. Jill enjoys the works of many artists including (but certainly not limited to) such artists as Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Kandinsky, Arnold Topp and Saul Steinberg.

About Old Union Chapel

As the Barossa’s oldest public building, the Old Union Chapel’s history forms part of a rich tapestry of local church activities from the time of settlement. Built in 1844 to provide a place of worship for people of all denominations, this church became a meeting place for many years before falling into a state of disrepair and being uitlised as a farm building.

Restored in 1989-1994 as a Bi-centennial project to commemorate the local pioneering spirit and religious freedom, the Chapel’s rejuvenation saw it added to the Register of State Heritage in 1993. Since then, this unique public building has become a much-loved destination for locals and visitors looking to celebrate milestones in an historic setting. The Old Union Chapel is a multi-denominational public space.
