Jody Fallon — 10 years later

Artist’s reception is 5-8 p.m. Saturday; free and open to the public

(Continued)

Known for his haunting figurative work and expressive landscapes, Fallon is a self taught contemporary artist.  He grew up near Lewisburg and after joining the United Sates Marine Corps, he traveled extensively throughout the United States and the Pacific Rim including Hawaii, Japan and Okinawa. 

In 2000 while living in Bloomsburg, he was introduced to fine art by two artists who he had come to know and admire — Frank Frazetta and Ron Wing, affording him the vehicle of expression he had sought most of his life. His informal art training consisted of alternating weekends traveling to East Stroudsburg to study in Frazetta’s museum. During that same time he spent his days learning the philosophy of fine art from Wing and painting in the fields at “Coles Mill,” a 200 year old grist mill which is Wing’s home and gallery located in Benton.

Fallon continues his close friendship with Wing, showing his work annually in Wing’s own West Creek Gallery.
