When Cameron University assistant professor of art Jack Crouch saw the call for entries for Strata Gallery’s Against the Grain juried art exhibition, he knew he had the perfect submission: an oil painting titled “Onward” that presents his unique take on Jacques-Louis David’s “Napoleon Crossing the Alps.” Juror Stephanie Jacinto included Crouch’s painting in her selections for the exhibition, which focuses on works that in some way resist following current trends within the art world. The exhibition is on display through February 5 at Strata Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
