Congratulation to Jack on his selection for the Emerging Artists Exhibition at the Artists Cooperative Gallery.

“I’m enamored with faces and all the expressions a face can make. I am very spontaneous with my work. I try not to plan too much ahead, and I go with the flow of creating an expression. I took more industrial classes than art classes in high school. Without much traditional art education, I make what I like and what looks good to me. I like to just have fun and be loose when creating and try not to take myself too seriously.”

You can see the exhibit at 405 S. 11th Street. Feb. 27-March 31. There is an opening reception Saturday, March 2 from 2-4 p.m.
