You will find impressionist artist Jack Dickerson painting or meticulously preparing his canvases every day in his Brewster gallery. He is noted for his bold use of color, interpretations of light, shadow and reflections, and uplifting themes. From brilliant mussels, oysters and blue crabs to dancing marshes and marching trees, Dickerson captures everyday happenstance in his stylistic works of beauty. “My painting is about discovery and exploration,” Dickerson says, “I’m always looking to ”surprise” myself.” He transforms seemingly minor daily occurrences into a striking moments in time. “This artists has a responsibility to paint the often forgotten positive themes of truth and hope, and remind us of the striking beauty of our natural surroundings.”
Dickerson’s mother was Dutch, and Dickerson went to graduate design school on a Ford Foundation grant in Switzerland. Prior to that he graduated from Rhode Island School of Design. Dickerson’s work has been displayed in numerous galleries and shows off-Cape, and has been recognized with many awards. Among others, Dickerson has studied with Wolf Kahn, Swiss artist Kurt Hauert and designer Armin Hoffman, Sy Sillman (Joseph Albers’ associate), and Photographer Harry Callahan.
Dickerson lives with his Trompe L’Oeil artist wife, Kate Dickerson, who recently painted the huge French mural in the Boulangerie at PB Bistro in Wellfleet.

Michael and Christine Jones, fine arts painter and poet, see and share the world together from their home in Orleans, to the streets of London, Paris, Barcelona, Bejing, and most recently Havana.
Michael’s oil paintings and Christine’s words share with the viewer their interpretation of the fantastic and simple beauty discovered while swimming surfing, clamming, gardening, or meandering city streets and country hills.
They have exhibited collaboratively at The Cape Cod Museum of Art, Dennis, MA, The Whistler House Art Museum, Lowell, MA, The Tsongas Gallery at Walden Pond, Concord, MA, and the Concord Free Library Art Gallery, Concord, MA. Michael has created the last four Olympic Team USA Triathlon posters and has art on display in Switzerland, Barcelona, London, and Bejing. He also painted the official portrait in the Avocet, University of Massachusetts Lowell’s The Offering, and Mused Bella Online.
Michael’s oil paintings, all on fine Belgium linen, and Christine’s poems displayed here reflect their most recent trips to Cuba, a historically and culturally enriching experience. Sugar cane streams from the fields, waves crash over the Malecon, salsa plays in every street.
Hear its music. Enjoy!
