WELCOME TO THE ART GALLERY
Evelyn has always been an artist.
She will always be an artist.
Her every act is filled with creative intention, vision and exuberance.
Since 2011 her principal media has been used Nespresso coffee pods. Working within the seemingly-constrained world of these particular shapes and color palettes has opened up a vast universe of possibilities ~ so much so that a separate website shows these works off now – podsNespresso.com
Prior work includes watercolor, collage and assembly art – a small portion of this gallery is assembled here for your enjoyment.
THE ALPHABET SEARCH
© Copyright 1984 Evelyn Jacob
Evelyn painted Alphabet Search in the early 1980's for her two sons, Joss and Bowie. Flip thru the first 3 letters as a sample of this wonderful book.
In the mid 90'S, Evelyn co-created a collaborative watercolor with Donna Roberts. Together they created an amazing piece of artwork.
Each took a piece of 7.5" x 11" watercolor paper; Evelyn painted the first piece, then gave it to Donna, who then matched the edges and created her own composition. She then gave the two painted pieces back to Evelyn who added a third, and so on. It grew to be 19 panels - 12 feet long.

For over 5 years, Evelyn was a monthly contributor to this unique, limited edition art magazine. EACH month she created 200 unique pages – yes, each month! And every year two covers highlighted her work. She was known as an Art/Life All Star for producing 13,000 original pieces of art (62 pieces x 200) of superb quality.
ART/LIFE began as a four-page newsletter produced by Joe Cardella who wanted to reach out to like-minded conceptual and progressive artists. Reproducing the first ART/LIFE on a photocopy machine, he tells us: “when sent, a communication will hopefully be received, deciphered and responded to.”
The result became a phenomenon that grew beyond its California roots and comprised an international network of artists, poets, and writers. Artists and writers submitted signed and numbered editions for inclusion in ART/LIFE. Cardella compiled and binded them into a cohesive whole. His editing results in striking sequences and patterns among the different art and literary works within each rare, limited edition.
Although ART/LIFE limited its monthly circulation to only 200 copies, its impact is notable. It is collected by such major institutions as New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Fine Arts and the Getty Trust in Santa Monica. It is also in many private collections, archives and museums throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan. ART/LIFE was the best selling periodical at the Guggenheim Museum bookstore in Soho, New York.
