About the artist whose artwork is now on view: "Jack Bender grew up in Los Angeles... began studying life drawing at the age of 14 with Famed California painter, Martin Lubner who had a studio on La Cienega. He was taken with Edward Keinholtz and the controversy his work caused. Bender would cruise through the alleyways and find discarded treasures, old doors, and metal objects, and bring them home to mount on wood and then paint. After studying Fine Art, Drama, and Cinema at the University of Southern California, Bender began in the 1970s to build a career in television, becoming one of the most celebrated director-producers of primetime TV. His television work has included Lost, Alias, The Sopranos, Felicity, and many others. Under Bender’s direction, Lost won best show at the 57th Annual Emmy Awards and also the Golden Globe. He most recently has executive produced and directed the CBS worldwide hit “Under the Dome.” He painted the iconic pieces used in the first season. Whenever he is not working on one of his shows, he is painting at his home studio in LA.The greatest recent addition to his life and art has been his wife, Laura Owens, becoming a Rabbi and opening him up to our stunningly rich heritage."
