Jay Emerson – Advisor

Jay Emerson – Advisor

James ‘Jay’ Emerson served in the US Army infantry during the Viet Nam war. He was wounded during the TET offensive and came home to Maine in 1969. He took up art a few years later and pursued it with enthusiasm after retirement. His rustic oil paintings reflect the landscapes and lifestyle of the great outdoors. In early 2012 Jay started the non-profit, American Veterans Arts & Crafts Gallery to showcase the many and diverse artistic talents of his fellow vets. While the online gallery is for charity, the artist-veterans keep 94% of what they sell. His organization and ours collaborate so often and so well, we asked Jay to join us. Happily, he said yes!
