Jay Hester Speaks at the Library
The Genealogical Society of Kendall County will sponsor a presentation by Jay Hester.
"Jay is a southerner by birth and a westerner at heart. After graduation from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, Jay was accepted to the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. After years as an illustrator with Lockheed Aircraft Corporation in Georgia, Jay headed west, where the rich surroundings sparked his interest in the Native American culture and other western subjects. His bronze sculpture and oil paintings have gained him notable recognition. His work can be found in universities, hospitals, public parks as well as in private collections. He resides in Boerne, Texas."
Jay will talk about the historical significance of his paintings on display in the Patrick Heath Public Library Community Room. Join us at the library in the Community Room on Saturday, June 24th at 2:00 pm.
