Exhibit Reception & Artist's Talk: November 5, 5:30pm, Wilson Hall's Concert Hall
November 5 - December 10,2013

The recent work by New England-based artist Frank Jackson shifts between raw, heavily pigmented paintings that revolve around the materiality and alchemy of his materials, to delicate works on paper that suggest maps of imagined terrains. In this exhibition, Jackson addresses the question of what constitutes a landscape by describing certain sites as an emotional and intellectual state created by memory as much as a physical place to be experienced. Since receiving his MFA from University of California Davis in 1990, Jackson's work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions. He has taught and lectured extensively with positions at Williams College, Rhode Island School of Design, and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.
