Subject:       Artist Talk with Alex Jack

Join us on April 2, 2022 for an Artist Talk with Alex Jack at the Minden Hills Cultural Centre.

Alex Jack’s current exhibition “Drawing in Landscape” is on display at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery and is a survey of landscape drawings, done both outside and in the studio.

The earliest date from 1975 and the most recent are from December 2021. The drawings range in size from 3” x 5” to 40” x 120” and use a wide variety of different drawing materials: charcoal, chalk, pastel, ink, and watercolour. The title “Drawing in Landscape” refers to two things: the first is to being outside, doing the artwork in the landscape and the second is to “draw in” the response to and experience of the landscape into the drawing. The experience of being in the landscape and the reaction is the impetus behind the work.

To hear Alex speak more of his work, join him at the Minden Hills Cultural Centre on Saturday April 2nd from 1 to 3 PM in the Welch Room.
