Jack Girard
Graduated 1975

“I work primarily in collage/mixed media drawing, as the form suits
the fragmented design of my days and facilitates rather immediate ideations. I also occasionally work in oil and acrylic paint, along with mixed media sculptural constructions. Current subjects that inform my works include conflict, history, cultural and ethnic diversity, and literature.”

“Mask: Noise,” a mixed-media work, takes a humorous look at family discord resulting from repeated pandemic lockdowns.

Jack Girard is currently a Professor of Art at Transylvania University, in Lexington, KY, USA, where he teaches multi-level drawing, painting, and upper-level all-media studios, along with periodic travel courses to Ireland and New York City. Mr. Girard’s work has been extensively exhibited, and is represented in many corporate, institutional, and private collections in the United States and overseas.
