Zack Jones is a self taught oil painter. He started his journey in 1999 at the age of 25. Three years later, while living in Cave Creek Arizona he met artist Sergio Ladron de Guevara(www.galeriabellasartesaz.com). Despite the obvious age and cultural differences the two instantly connected and their teacher/pupil relationship continues to grow to this day. Although much of Zack’s knowledge and inspiration comes from Sergio’s sixty years of experience, he soon realized that his passion lies in painting themes that involve a personal connection.
In 2006 Jones relocated to his hometown Malvern, Iowa. Since relocating the thirty-nine year old artist has painted local scenes, helped create an artist cooperative gallery in the Old Market, spent two years at Corning Iowa’s Art and Residency Program while continuing travel to Cave Creek Arizona to work on an ongoing series.
In the spring of 2012 Zack purchased a 140 year old church in Malvern. He is currently retrofitting this unique building into a permanent studio to showcase large oil and mixed media paintings. The space will be available for seasonal concerts and private events. Project Art Church is located two blocks east of the Wabash Trace Nature Trail on 4th St. in the heart of Malvern.
