Four Day Ray Showcase: Michael Jack’s “Around the USA”

Four Day Ray Showcase: Michael Jack’s “Around the USA”

Michael Jack’s love of the Palouse region of Washington state in the Summer, and Maine in the Winter, are just two reasons that his upcoming Four Day Ray exhibit is so aptly titled, “Around the USA.” 

An avid learner who loves to travel, Michael is continuously striving to improve his photographic skills, which are already pretty amazing.  As he refines his craft, he finds that upon returning to a favorite location, weather conditions change, the environment changes and his vision changes. “As a landscape photographer, I am inspired by the immense variety and beauty of landscapes across the US.”

Michael remains active in a variety of photography clubs and competitions.  A juried member of the Hamilton County Artists’ Association, he joined the Photographic Society of American-Worldwide (PSA) in 2017 and became PSA Treasurer in April 2019. He has won a number of awards in competitions, most recently being recognized for the second year in a row as a Top Ten Photographer in the Indiana State Fair competition. He was also awarded an artist’s distinction by the International Federation of Photographic Art and a recognition of photographic excellence by PSA. As a learner, turned teacher, he has given presentations for clubs and groups on composition, color management, printing, post processing and image analysis.

Meet Michael at his free public reception at Four Day Ray Brewing at 11671 Lantern Road in Fishers on Monday, July 11 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Enjoy his artwork all summer long while you take in local fare and on-site brews from Four Day Ray, open seven days a week.
