He was calledto start painting after the sudden death of his twin sister, Jessica, in2010. 

     

    His work elicits energy by using bright colorssurrounded by bold black lines. Since the beginning, he has used painting astherapy to direct grief into movement, thoughtfulness and to hold a mirror upto society. He is influenced by the work of many artists including Mike Judge,Margaret Kilgallen✝, Ed Roth✝, Genndy Tartakovsky and two major inspirations; Keith Haring✝ & Jean-MichelBasquiat✝. 

     

    JasonFlack’s work can be found all over downtown Johnson City, TN, in privatecollections and in the Reece Museum permanent collection. In the summer of2021, his painting titled, The Black Nanny won Best in Show at theKingsport Art Guild’s Appalachian Art Show. In 2021, he painted a mobilemural for Lowe’s to commemorate their 100 years of service along with 99 otherartists selected from all over the United States. He continues to collaboratewith the City of Johnson City and ETSU and was the featured front cover artistfor the A! Magazine for the Arts October 2021 issue.

He will also be a vendor and speaker at the Bristolin Bloom Festival October 8th. Jason’s work can be found on Instagram(@artbyjasonflack).

    “Jason’s work is bold in color and in the pointhe is trying to get across to the viewer. His work is insightful, engaging and it makes you think,” says McKinneyCenter Director, Theresa Hammons.  “Ihope when people come into the center to see his work, they stand and studyit.  Each piece tells a story. “

It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. (Summary from Concord Theatricals)

    Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and when she's discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. (Summary from Concord Theatricals)

    Some of Irving Berlin’s most recognizable songs like “There’s No Business Like Show Business, ” “ They Say It’s Wonderful,” and “Anything You Can Do.”
