West Chester Borough artist Philip Jamison’s paintings will be showcased at West Chester University that will run through Oct. 14, writes Bill Rettew for the Daily Local News

The works encompass Jamison’s entire career. 

Over 70 pastels, pencils, and watercolors pieces can be viewed at the spacious John H. Baker Gallery. The paintings depict Chester County, the coast of Maine, and flowers, while some focus on NASA and space exploration. 

Many of the exhibited paintings are the artist’s favorites. 

“He saved a lot of the pictures he thought were the best,” said his son, Flip Jamison III. “He never sold his favorites. He couldn’t bring himself to sell them.” 

Jamison, whose career spanned 75 years, passed last year aged 96. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
