Recent paintings by Jack Stratton

An opening reception for “Fiction of Light” — Recent Paintings by Jack Stratton will be Friday, Sept. 23, at 5 p.m. The exhibition, in the Jackson Library Reading Room, will run until Jan. 6. All of the paintings are on sale and a percentage of the proceeds will benefit the University Libraries.

Jack Stratton is no stranger to the University Libraries. He first started working in Jackson Library as a student. After receiving his BFA in Painting at UNCG in 1977, Jack joined the library staff full time as a bookbinder. From the library, Jack moved to the Weatherspoon Art Museum where he worked for 20 years as a preparator. Last year, after 30 years of service, Jack retired from UNCG, but not from the art world. He currently paints in his Greensboro studio, as well as teaches drawing and watercolor painting at the Art Alliance, an organization sponsored by the City of Greensboro. He also works as a freelance preparator, curator, art handler and lighting consultant.
