WEST PARIS – West Paris Public Library is proud to present “The Love of Painting and Sharing It With Others,” an inspiring art exhibit by Reginald “Reggie” Jack, now through June 28. The exhibit may be enjoyed every day the library is open. Reginald “Reggie” Jack was born in 1930 in Buckfield, Maine. His passion for art began when he was a young boy. His mother was a school teacher, and among the many subjects she taught, one was art.

She would bring her work home, which inspired him to start drawing and painting. Reggie has had many commissioned pieces of art. Locally, Norway Savings Bank Corporate Offices had twenty or so pieces on display. Reggie has held a variety of jobs throughout his life. He worked at a hotel in Old Orchard Beach for Metropolitan Life Insurance Company and as a restaurant manager for Goodwin’s Dairy.

Reggie served in the military for four years as a high-speed radio operator during the Korean War. He was tasked with sending messages via Morse code. Reggie married his wife, Helen, in 1981, and they raised five children. Reggie has continued his passion for painting at Market Square. He paints every chance he gets. He enjoys doing what he loves and sharing that with others.

Items featured in this exhibit span from 1948 through the present.
