Zack Jones is a self taught oil painter. He first 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 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 fifty-eight years of experience, he soon realized that his passion lies in painting themes that involve a personal connection. It was this realization that lead to Zack relocating 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. Zack currently has paintings in Creighton University’s private collection, D’Addario (http://www.daddario.com/DaddarioSplash.Page?ActiveID=1740), Bruce Cohn (founder of Br. Cohn Winery & Producer for the Doobie Brothers), and many other collectors throughout the United States. Zack’s art continues to evolve and is consistently gaining more attention. His future plans include diving deeper into a subject matter that he feels strongly about which is Art and Historical Preservation. This theme is an ongoing series reflecting present day Midwest rural America and the reinvention of small town Iowa.
Currently Zack has relocated to his hometown Malvern, Iowa creating a new studio/gallery in a one hundred, forty year old church. www.facebook.com/ProjectArtChurch
