WHAT’S HAPPENING: Kidron artist plans winter showcase

DGKN staff report

KIDRON  Local artist Jack Salsburey is trying something different.

He is offering a free showing of his artwork all day Saturday – 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. – at Dutch Kitchen’s Cottage (in back) at 14278 Lincoln Way E, Dalton.

And he’s inviting community members to see his works in time for the holidays.

The event is COVID-compliant, Salsburey said, and masks and distancing are required.

The Kidron artist works in oil, acrylic, watercolor and graphite. Known as a landscape artist, J N Salsburey (Jack) began to grow his interest in art beginning in high school in Ottawa, Ohio. According to his website at, Salsburey attended Columbus College of Art & Design and later The Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division.

After moving to Kidron, he and his wife, Shelley, have been together for almost 40 years, according to his website. Samples of Salsburey’s art – acrylic and oil paintings and pencil portraits and more – are available on his website.

“My vision has always been creating from my mind,” Salsburey states on his website. “I should imagine that shall always be the case. That being said, it is always my continual vision/bent to create something that is pleasing to others. It is my hope that I have created something to which people can grasp as a connection to a memory or feeling they can fondly be reminded of … and I do enjoy that!”
