Happenings

Suzanne Jackson: Five Decades

Jepson Center
We proudly present the first full-career survey and most comprehensive presentation to date for American artist Suzanne Jackson (American, b. 1944). Jackson's lyrical and playful dream landscapes and nonobjective paintings push against any definitions to categorize, and instead rightly define a unique perspective that evolves and sharpens over the course of one’s life pursuits.
