Gallery 1212 presents work by 'the matriarch and patriarch of the art renaissance in Old Town,' Clif and Jane McChesney
In August 1966, Michigan State University Art Professor Clifton “Clif” McChesney went to Kyoto on a yearlong sabbatical with his two sons and his wife, Jane, a fashion illustrator and fellow artist. While the children attended an international primary school, Jane McChesney taught art and Clif McChesney painted every day in a home studio. Over the course of the sabbatical, the family took time to tour Japan and revel in the country’s natural beauty.
