Happy Halloween


Jack M.Coelho has been a ceramic artist for 40 years and a fine arts educator for 26 years. Mr. Coelho’s artwork has appeared in Ceramics Monthly and Craft Horizons magazines and has been included in regional and national juried exhibitions. His artwork can be found in collections worldwide. 

Mr. Coelho has received state, regional and national recognition as an outstanding Fine Arts Educator. He has served as Fine Arts Curriculum Chair in two school districts in Oregon and has taught on the middle school, high school, community college, art institute, and university levels.  In addition, Mr. Coelho has led accredited ceramics and art history workshops in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.


Jack describes his current work as three-dimensional paintings which combine deeply personal, revelatory content with images rendered in an almost whimsical, cartoon like fashion. 

“All of the sculptural work presented in this show resulted from my experiences traveling, studying, and teaching in Mexico. I became intrigued by the creativity, resourcefulness and celebratory nature of the Mexican people and especially enchanted with the 19th century, spiritually inspired, folk art forms called “retablo” and “ex-voto”. So taken by the charm and simple honesty of this genre I have appropriated the word “retablo” and incorporated it in the title of this series of wall relief sculptures- “Nuevo Retablos”.

Opening reception will be on Friday, October 7th from 5-8 pm with wine, snacks and LIVE MUSIC by Matthew Kriemelman and friends.
