Jack Lancto shows paintings at 8 Chains North
Leesburg, Va – Jack Lancto of Leesburg has been selected to display his paintings at 8 Chains North in Waterford. The Winery’s new arts program promotes Loudoun artists as well as provides winery guests an opportunity to view and appreciate fine art during their tastings.
Well known for his paintings of the sky, Lancto is both fascinated and inspired by the boundless source of light patterns and color subtleties he witnesses. “The sky is God’s greatest piece of abstract art,” the artist claims, “and it is my challenge to capture moments which present a deep connection to magic, to God, to nature, to spirituality.”
Raised in upstate New York’s Adirondack Mountains, Lancto is naturally drawn to the Blue Ridge. His paintings reflect the common qualities of both regions, and they present a strong sense of familiarity for him and his viewers.
Lancto received art training at the State University of New York’s art school in New Paltz where he learned discipline and intellectual grounding as an artist. He moved to Virginia in 1997 and currently lives in Leesburg with his wife and dog. He exhibits regularly in regional juried shows and galleries. Lancto’s paintings will be on display at the winery through April 30. 8 Chains North is located at 38593 Daymont Lane in Waterford or visit 8chainsnorth.com for information and directions.
