Currently on view at Jane Deering Gallery — JON SARKIN | PORTRAITS

Currently on view at Jane Deering Gallery — JON SARKIN | PORTRAITS — with a special reception with the artist on Saturday December 4th from 2-5pm.  Many on Cape Ann are familiar with Jon Sarkin — contemporary Outsider Artist — and his abstracted drawings of cactuses, sailboats, and comic book characters; yet his vast body of work consists equally of a large number of portraits. The new works on view in this exhibition capture the purity of feeling and mood. With strong homages to Caravaggio, Francis Bacon, and Van Gogh, Jon’s unique vision and voice brings a fresh perspective on the time-honored tradition of portraiture.
