Chicago artist Jack Nixon is a contemporary American Photo-realist artist who specializes in graphite drawings of Chicago landmarks and architectural details.
Jack graduated from New Trier East in 1975, where he gravitated toward technical art classes and now depicts iconic buildings throughout the city of Chicago with extreme detail. A highlight of his exhibit consists of six drawings called "Studies in Light and Form: The Chicago Seven and the Michigan Avenue Bridge Sculptures," which took him a total of FOUR years to complete over a period of TWENTY-FIVE years!
The exhibit is open during school hours until November 17th, located in the Brierly Gallery on the third floor of the Winnetka Campus.
