The Art Association takes a few steps off the path this Friday, November 21, when it holds an opening reception for two long-time Jackson plein air painters: Greg McHuron and Jim Wilcox. “Greg McHuron & Jim Wilcox: On Location,” will be on view at the ArtSpace Theater Gallery November 21-January 15, 2009. Friday’s festivities begin at 5:30 pm. The exhibition is sponsored by Jackson’s own “Deaf As a Post Lunch Bunch,” with Bert Raynes as “Chief Curmudgeon.”
“Plein air” is the art form meaning ‘painting in fresh air.’ Long time friends and colleagues, McHuron and Wilcox are nationally known artists; their painting lives forever intertwined. Come pay tribute to these two plein air giants; their work is integral to our region’s great art history, and it is rare to have both artists on hand simultaneously. For more information, contact the Art Association at 307-733-6379.
We’ll post more on this exhibit at a later date.
