Nastinctive: Jack Dale and Michael Sweere


Dates: July 5-26
Opening Reception: Saturday July 11th, 7-10pm
Hours: Saturdays and Sundays, noon-4pm

Rosalux Gallery is proud to announce the opening of “Nastinctive” a portmanteau of nature and instinct.

The natural instinctive process with which Jack Dale creates his layered acrylic paintings merges with the animals in nature that Mike Sweere builds with his stunning recycled tin collages.

The circus is in town with Michael Sweere’s newest installation at Rosalux Gallery. His 100% free range “Old-Time Tin Emporium” features exotic animal portraits created from recycled tin. Lemurs, lizards, badgers and birds – animal lovers of all ages will enjoy this colorful and curious exhibition.  For more information contact the artist at:, or visit

Jack Dale began his 44 year art career as a landscape painter. Gradually his work became more expressive. Taking liberties with color and shape, Dale’s paintings began to explore abstraction and by 2007 he was working fully as an abstract expressionist. With the body of paintings in this show, Dale pursues the work in a natural and instinctive way to create 16 loose acrylic paintings of what he calls psychotic expression.

Gallery hours are 12 – 4 PM Saturdays and Sundays and admission is free and open to the public.
