Jack’s Photo Exhibition opens December 3 at Trailside Nature Center

Exciting News! I’m having my first-ever photo exhibition at the Trailside Nature Center in River Forest. The exhibit opens on Sunday,

December 3rd with a reception from 1 – 3 pm. The collection will include many images from my personal library that have never been on display.  We’re expecting many area photographers and students from my photo classes to drop by for the open reception, but you needn’t be too far into this art form/hobby to enjoy the images. The exhibition will be up through January, 2018.  More details soon.

About Jack

A classically trained musician since childhood, Jack Carlson always had the “ear” of an artist. It was only a short step to develop the artist’s “eye” as well.

The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.

Each photograph tells a story.
