Event: Thursday, February 7 from 9:30am to 9pm

The Jackson Family Art Show (JFAS) was launched in 2013 by curator Diane Williams to showcase the unique talents of three generations of artists. Native Washingtonian C.R. Wells, brother of Williams, has been creating art locally for over 45 years. Jasmine Williams is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and majored in Art. The talent extends to the next generation, with six members of the Jackson family.

JFAS has been featured in numerous exhibits in the metro area over the years and the library is thrilled to have them back. The exhibition featured paintings, drawings, and multi-media pieces. Participants are encouraged and led to create their own masterpieces using mediums such as paint, pencils, crayons, yarn, plants, and markers.

The art show will be featured at the Watha T. Daniel (Shaw) Public Library all day, Thursday, February 7, in the library’s main conference room.

Shaw Library is located at 1630 7th St. NW.
