The Handwerker Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of "Daniel Jackson: Upon Reflection," curated by Cheryl Kramer, on Thursday, October 6.

"Upon Reflection" offers the viewer a glimpse into the intimate, playful world of Daniel Jackson’s still-life paintings. This body of work is characterized by a small selection of objects brought into a unified composition through subtle tonal variations within a virtually monochromatic background.
