Tom Fudge: The San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park is now showing an exhibition of the works of one of the finest artists San Diego has ever produced. His name was Everett Gee Jackson. In the early part of the 20th century he was the chairman of the art department at San Diego State. He was a modernist whose art resembles that of some other American and Mexican artists of the 1930s.

The exhibit Everett Gee Jackson/San Diego Modern, 1920-1955 will be on display through Jan. 27 at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park.
