Biography  
Jack Meanwell


From Canada, Jack Meanwell became an artist of landscape and figurative work in styles ranging from totally abstract to realist. He has spent over 25 years as an instructor in the community education program at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and, while living in Cincinnati, has maintained a studio in an 1818 mansion called Elmwood Hall in Ludlow, Kentucky. He and his wife spend their summers in Canada.

Meanwell grew up in Windsor, Ontario, across the river from Detroit, and attended the Detroit Art Academy and the Society of Arts and Crafts. The Depression was raging, so he shifted his energies to commercial art at a technical school. During World War II, he was in the Royal Canadian Air Force and instructed ground crews about radar.   ...  Displaying 750 of 1940 characters.
