Show of Harry Jackson artwork opens in Clearmont

An art show in Clearmont, a small town near Buffalo, is featuring a broad survey of abstract expressionist work by Harry Jackson.

Jackson (1924-2011) was a painter, sculptor and sketch artist from Cody who mastered a diverse range of styles and is widely considered one of the most important and acclaimed artists of the 20th century.

The show is now open at the Ucross Foundation gallery in Clearmont and will run through April 10. The gallery is at 30 Big Red Lane.

This show constitutes the first major new look at Jackson's abstract art since it received broad critical acclaim in the 1950s. It will include works from 1995-2006.

The show will also feature new commentary and analysis from artist and former Yellowstone Art Museum senior curator Gordon McConnell examining the importance of Jackson's body of abstract work.
