JACK SINCLAIR GALLERY

Virtual Experience Coming Soon

MISSION

An artist-run space, the Jack Sinclair Gallery mission is to present visual arts programming of excellence including exhibitions, artist talks, symposium and workshops.

Following the footsteps of our namesake, we encourage experimentation and innovation, and present artwork by a variety of artists in all mediums, with special focus on under-represented artists such as those of color, women, and other marginalized groups.

We are interdisciplinary, inter generational, multicultural, and committed to social justice.  Our community engagement programming aspires to connect artists and audiences in meaningful ways, inviting dialogue to celebrate world cultures.

HISTORY

Alice Lovelace, Board Director of The ArtsXchange met Jack Sinclair several times; first at his letterpress studio where they bonded over their experiences as a letterpress operator. Then met again when he was organizing the 1985 Mattress Factory Show, and in 1986 when Alice Lovelace became Executive Director, Jack Sinclair came to the Arts Exchange. He brought with him his formidable skills as a carpenter, his contacts, and letterpresses. Jack created our gallery space, worked on the theatre, taught me how to look after the massive boiler, and renovated the old cafeteria building it out with an incredible loft and other additions. Jack Sinclair was committed to the purpose of The Arts Exchange and excited to work with the gallery. The Board and Staff of the Arts Exchange are honored to re-dedicate and return to the name our first gallery the Sinclair Gallery at The Arts Exchange.

 

Jack Whitney Sinclair, attended Georgia Tech (believed to have) and afterward was getting some notice as an installation sculpture artist and working increasing with old letterpresses. He started an underground artist studio known as the Mattress Factory in Little Five Points and then started the Jack Sinclair Letterpress Studio on Edgewood Ave. As artistic efforts, unfortunately, are not profitable, he and his wife Nancy closed their studio and relocated to Rio Rancho, New Mexico where his pursuit of Letterpress art continued. By his death, he had accumulated some 15 tons of Letterpresses, some of which turned out to be quite old and of some value. His wife Nancy donated the presses to the University of Arizona, where the Jack Sinclair Letterpress Studio is now an instructional part of the art department, now well known, and now produces graduates and works attributed to his named studio.
