Potter Center exhibit by Jackson-area photographer explores nature, architecture

Jacob Jabkiewicz loves photography.

The Jackson native and Grass Lake resident has been taking photos practically his whole life. An exhibit of his works, “Ephemeral: The Photography of Jacob Jabkiewicz,” will be held in the Potter Center Art Gallery at Jackson Community College, with an opening reception at 7 p.m. on Nov. 6, before the NBC “Last Comic Standing” tour show. The exhibit runs Nov. 1-30, and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and during performances at the Potter Center.

“I am most passionate about architectural details,” said Jabkiewicz, who holds an architectural degree from Lawrence Technological University and a teaching certificate from Eastern Michigan University. He has previously attended Jackson Community College and is currently taking a creative writing course there. This exhibit will include some of his poetry.

“I go out (to take photos) when I can, at any time of the day, in all kinds of weather – I am flexible,” he said. “I get satisfaction from capturing a moment in time – photography captures moments in time better than any other medium.”

Although he has been taking photos for many years, Jabkiewicz did not start having exhibits until this year. His works have been featured at the Bon Ton Room in Jackson, the Jackson District Library’s Grass Lake Branch, and the Foggy Bottom Coffee House in Dexter.

Jabkiewicz wants to emphasize that everyone is welcome to attend the reception.

“This exhibit is for everybody – my work is appropriate for everyone.” ###
