The School of International Service at American University is partnering with Addison/Ripley Fine Art to display work by well-known local artist Kay Jackson. This will be a special exhibition featuring a selection of Jackson's moving and evocative environmentally themed oil paintings hung in conjunction with the University's celebration of Earth Week.

Jackson has built a distinguished artistic career with an international following. During the last twenty years she has focused on environmental issues and endangered species as inspiration for canvases created with old master painting techniques and gold leaf.  Her artwork is in the permanent collections of the National Academy of Sciences, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the U.S. Department of State where she also lends paintings to the Art in the Embassies Program.

The School of International Service is located at the intersection of New Mexico and Nebraska Avenues, NW. Parking is available beneath the building, or in the Nebraska Avenue parking lot opposite the main campus. Parking is free on weekends and after 5pm weekdays.
