Greenwich (Washington County) native Jacob Houston has charmed audiences throughout the Northeast with his idyllic land- and cityscapes and detailed glimpses into everyday life. With bright colors and enamel-like scenes, he romanticizes the places he travels, re-creating the world as he sees it — full of joy, wonder, and beauty.
Houston’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the region, at LARAC’s Lapham Gallery, Saratoga Arts Center, Washington County Farm Museum, Green Bridge Gallery, Historic Salem Courthouse, and Southern Vermont Arts Center. His reach extends into Vermont and Massachusetts and, increasingly, New York City. He has twice been included in the National Society of Casein & Acrylic Painters’ exhibition at Salmagundi Club in Manhattan.
