Shape - November 2018
A juried and curated publication showcasing established and emerging artists from around the world.
Dedicated To True Expression Through The Arts
APÉRO originates from the word aperitif, which comes from the latin word 'aperture', meaning "to open". The goal of APÉRO is to bring artists and art patrons together, to enjoy an intellectual, and in-depth experience through the presentation of art. In essence the reason for the name 'APÉRO' is because it is a catalyst to 'open' and 'expose' the mind to new ideas.
APÉRO was founded by Southern California artist E.E. Jacks. E.E. Jacks is a fine artist. Jacks paints landscapes, urban scenes, nocturnes, interiors, figures, and still life.
APÉRO formerly had an established physical gallery space in Fullerton, California exhibiting local artists. The gallery space was curated by E.E. Jacks along with co-curator artist Tess Is and various jurors.
APÉRO currently publishes an online fine art catalogue. E.E. Jacks curates the online catalogue with Jeremy E. Grayson who is an accomplished artist and senior graphic designer. The catalogue is published monthly and is an opportunity for established and emerging artists nationally and internationally to submit their work to be juried and curated.
