Cynthia-Reeves Announces Thomas Jackso Artist Reception
CYNTHIA-REEVES presents an exhibition of prints and a site-specific installation by Thomas Jackson from August 26th through October 7th. As part of the gallery's new programming initiative, the artist will work on-site from August 22nd - 25th to create a final iteration of a work in process. The artist's reception is scheduled for the last day of his active work in the gallery, Friday, August 25th from 5 - 7 p.m. While working on site, Jackson will be available to discuss the installation and his creative process, and to demonstrate the handwork and thesis behind his final installations.
Thomas Jackson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and grew up in Providence, Rhode Island. After earning a B.A. in History from the College of Wooster, he spent much of his career in New York City as an editor and book reviewer for magazines. It was his particular interest in photography books that led him to pick up a camera, first shooting Garry Winogrand-inspired street scenes, then landscapes, and finally the installation work he does today. His work has been shown at Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta, GA and Miller Yezerski Gallery in Boston, MA. Jackson was named one of the Critical Mass Top 50 in 2012, won the "installation/still-life" category of PDN's The Curator award in 2013, and earned second place in CENTER's Curator's Choice Award in 2014. He lives in San Francisco.
