Spencer also will give a public talk at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 20 in Trahern, Room 401. He will present a survey of his work and discuss its evolution.

According to his Web site, www.jackspencer.net, Spencer said he considers all forms of artwork to be “portraiture.”

“This is true not only in the photographic arts but also in music, litera-
ture, painting or sculpture,” he stated on the Web site. “The person creating is always reflected in the effect of the final creation.”

Susan Bryant, an art professor at APSU, helped select the works for Spencer's exhibition.

“Jack's work is truly beautiful. We are so delighted to be able to share this work with our students and the Clarksville community,” she said. “There are so many different kinds of pictures in the exhibition. They show that Jack is always searching for new approaches to his work and are evidence of his great curiosity about the world.”
