Westport Book Shop Welcomes Artist Jarvis Wilcox

Westport, CT  The Westport Book Shop is pleased to welcome artist Jarvis Wilcox as guest exhibitor for the month of December at the Book Shop’s Drew Friedman Art Place.

Jarvis is exhibiting seven of his small oil paintings featuring nature, landscapes and still life.

Jarvis studied art history at Yale University and Columbia University; and studied painting with his mentor Arthur Stern.  Jarvis painted in upstate New York for a decade, and then in the Hamptons for 25 years.  He now resides in Westport, and is a member of the Silvermine Guild of Artists, and the Artists Collective of Westport.

Jarvis Wilcox’s artwork will be on exhibit at the Book Shop through December 31, 2022.  All artwork on display is available for purchase — and would make a perfect holiday gift for someone special in your life!

The Book Shop will be holding a reception for Jarvis on Saturday, December 10th from 5pm to 7pm.  All are welcome.
