Jason Jacques will be celebrating 30 years in the art world with an exhibition at his eponymous gallery on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. This cataloged anniversary exhibition will showcase 30 pieces from artists in his contemporary program alongside the historic clay masters who sparked it all. “I think that Western art culture has finally embraced the ceramic medium,” he muses. “And I hope the people I’m showing will go down as the greats of this moment.” To celebrate Jason…and with a seven-foot-tall trompe l’oeil tree as part of the show…I will be attending the opening on January 25 from 6 – 8 PM. Details at Jason Jacques Gallery.
