April Art Exhibit Eclectic Expressions: An Adventure in Images by Jim R. Wilton

April 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

JEL is pleased to host Jim R. Wilton’s “Eclectic Expressions: An Adventure in Images.”

Artist Statement: “I’ve been photographing and painting for years, in fact, all my life. I’m mostly self-taught other than my elementary and high school. I have photographed lighthouses as well as other subjects for inspiration for my art. These beautiful locations have inspired me to seek more outdoor locations as well as other subject matter. I spent many years painting portraits but have switched it up to trying lighthouses after a hiatus to raise children but also found myself returning to portraits. I began photographing outdoor scenes and wildlife in 2008 after finding digital photography, making it more accessible. A few years ago, I began painting again after a friend painted from one of my photos thus inspiring me to try again. I haven’t stopped but also got into crafts such as seashell jewelry boxes, Christmas trees, and lighthouses. I hope folks enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed painting it.”
