Jack Stern demos his oil painting techniques

Written by 

Landscape painter Jack Stern will demonstrate oil painting techniques at 6:15 p.m. on Jan. 5 at the Swain County Center for the Arts in Bryson City.

He will discuss the medium of oil painting and how to develop the painting from concept to finished artwork as he completes a landscape painting for the Art League of the Smokies.

Stern specializes in oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings of the Smoky Mountains and the Rocky Mountains.

The demonstration is free and sponsored by the North Carolina Arts Council, Swain County Center for the Arts and Swain County Schools.

Stern began painting in oils when he was 14 years old and started formal art classes soon after in San Diego. At 16, he sold his first painting.

Stern currently lives with his wife Peggy in a remote cabin in Tuckasegee near the Black Balsam Mountains, where they moved with their two sons more than 12 years ago.  

During the years, Stern has received numerous honors and awards, most recently including the “Award of Distinction” in 2011 from Art in the Park Juried Show in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
