Having been graduated from The Pennington School in 2003, Jamie Moore is now a teacher of history at Pennington as well as a practicing artist. During his student days at Pennington School he became good friends with Rhyder Cookman ’03—artist Whitney Cookman’s son. Through this friendship, Mr. Moore was able to get a close-up view of the wood engraving process. Under Mr. Cookman's tutelage Mr. Moore quickly developed a love for the process and eventually integrated his love for the past by studying and trying his hand at wood engraving styles throughout history.

Mr. Cookman P'03 is a wood engraver, and shares his amazing print work with us in this exhibition. He is also a painter and graphic designer. During his 35-year tenure at Random House, Inc. in New York City, Mr. Cookman served as a graphic designer, art director, Senior Vice President and Creative Director. He has designed book covers for authors John Grisham, Deepak Chopra, and Barak Obama, just to name a few.

All are welcome to attend a reception with the artists to be held on Saturday, October 11, from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.
