Jack Chevalier Memorial Exhibition
The Vietnam War had a profound impact on the life and art of Jack Chevalier (1948- 2021). He was a victim of Agent Orange, the toxic aerial spray used by the US military. Moving to Seattle in the late 1970s, Chevalier created a life and career in painting, with considerable success in New York in the 1980s and 1990s. Ranging in media from abstract constructions to photo-based images of political violence in our own times, Chevalier overcame tremendous obstacles to make art of enduring beauty.
