Two local artists, Morgan Simon and Ben Jackson, teamed up to exhibit their paintings at the Dietrich Theater in Tunkhannock. Jackson’s styles, which vary from whimsical to realistic and still life to portraits, are displayed side by side with Simon’s ethereal landscapes, making for a striking juxtaposition of art works.

The exhibit will be in the Dietrich Theater’s Sherwood Gallery through February.

Simon was raised in Nicholson and graduated from Lackawanna Trail in 2008. After high school, she studied fine art at Keystone College, receiving her degree in 2013 with a concentration in painting.

Jackson grew up in Lake Winola and graduated from Tunkhannock High School. He attended Keystone College for a brief period of time.
