Rockton artist Jerry Jacobs: neon boho art for the path less traveled


An artist's reception with featured artist Jerry Jacobs will be held from 1 -3 p.m Saturday, Nov. 26, 2022 at Jill Rae Finally Art Studio & Gallery, 210 W. Main Street in Rockton. His exhibit, "California Dream'n on Such a Winter's Day," will be on display at the gallery through Dec. 23, 2022. All day, the gallery is offering free crocheted snowballs with any purchase. You may even win one of Jerry's California Dream'n mugs. Saturday is Small Business Saturday, a day to visit local shops 

Jerry, longtime resident of Rockton, IL, is also a long-time musician and guitarist. His repertoire includes the 1965 hit song by The Mamas & the Papas from which his exhibit gets its name.

He says about his "neon drawings," "I create the colorful vibe of Boho Hippy Art for the unique individual. I take my inspiration from the Art Nouveau of the 1890's Paris and 1960's Haight-Ashbury scene. Boho Art once again thrives among those who walk the path less traveled."

JR Finally Art represents 24 local and regional artists who work in a variety of media including oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media paintings, pottery, photography, stained glass and fine craft. The gallery also offers handmade gift items and note cards. Various classes are available for groups and individuals.
