Art and Photography of Glenn and Jesse Justus

October 21, 2018 12:00pm–4:00pm

The Klamath Art Gallery presents a memorable and inspiring exhibit by local father and son, Glenn and Jesse Justus. Works range from stunning photography by Jesse Justus, to outstanding woodworking and painting by Jesse’s father, Glenn. The opening reception for the artists will be held on Sunday, October 7th, from noon to 4 PM. The exhibit will continue through Sunday, October 28th.

Glenn Justus was born in the West Virginia mountains in a little place called Cabin Creek. Justus has travelled a good portion of the globe and his paintings reflect the images captured by his camera. In addition, Justus has been a woodcarver since he was old enough to hold a knife and a leather carver since high school. A Renaissance man, Justus is a musician and a luthier, repairing old instruments and building new ones, and a skilled silversmith.

Glenn Justus is a member of the Klamath Writers Guild wherein he writes songs, stories, and poetry. He has recorded twelve CD’s and a book that includes two CD’s of original songs and poetry. He currently resides in Klamath Falls with his wife, son, and four dogs.

Jesse Justus graduated from Klamath Union High School and became interested in photography in the late 90’s. After becoming an expert in digital camerawork, he was drawn to wildlife photography with a concentration in avian photography. Jesse, like his father, is a Renaissance man with memberships in the Klamath Folk Music Society and Photography as well as the Audubon Society.
