Heirloom Cafe has been providing a home for the rich ink and pastel works of Jack Burk since the beginning of November, but it is now celebrating with an artist reception. Visitors will get a chance to meet with the Iowa native and discuss his expressive natural scenes. Jack Burk retired with his wife to Athens after 42 years teaching art in public schools and a private Native American school. Since moving, Burk has become an active member of the local arts community, as both a member of the Athens Area Plein Air Artists and the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation. Burk has also been expanding his proficiency in new mediums, such as collage and colored pencil. Burk’s work will be on display at Heirloom until Dec. 13, so there is plenty of time to catch a glimpse of the vibrant worlds of Jack Burk. As a reminder, Heirloom intends to close permanently on Dec. 18 after 12 years as a popular neighborhood spot.
