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, AZ, he met artist Sergio Ladron de Guevara. Despite the age and cultural differences the two instantly connected and their teacher/pupil relationship began. Although much of Zack’s knowledge and inspiration comes from Sergio’s 60 years of experience, he soon realized that his passion lies in painting themes that involve a personal connection. This lead Zack back to his hometown of Malvern, Iowa, in 2006. For the next three years Zack painted local and regional scenes in Southwest Iowa. During this time he also helped co-found “Old Market Artists” gallery in Downtown Omaha and attended the Corning Fine Arts Residency Program. Zack currently has paintings in Creighton University’s private collection along with many other collectors throughout the states.
Zack’s future plans include diving deeper into the subject Art and Historical Preservation. This theme is an ongoing series reflecting the rural midwest while encouraging new ideas for small town Iowa.
Currently Zack has relocated to his hometown Malvern, Iowa creating a new studio in a one hundred, forty year old church. www.facebook.com/ProjectArtChurch
