We’re excited to welcome Jackie Clark from New York City, New York as a juried artist for Paint Annapolis 2022! Jackie grew up in the Annapolis area, and her family has lived here on and off for generations.

Jackie’s areas of expertise range from photography, scenic painting and design, to the decorative arts. Jackie is a portrait and figurative painter who is a recurring participant in Plein Air competitions throughout the region.

“The thing that I most love about Plein Air painting is having the opportunity to try and completely absorb the essence of a place; to sit or stand for 2 to 3 hours, focused on all that it is, a living biosphere. No earbuds, no music, and hopefully no distractions. I share the space with whatever is out there with me, respect the quiet of it, and leave no trace. Then if all goes well, I walk away with a little piece of the experience on a panel to share the meditation.”
