Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Jim earned a degree in Graphic Design at the University of Cincinnati. He began painting as a hobby while working in advertising and marketing. Awed by nature, he works to understand and experience it through his art. Jim shares these moments in the natural world with acrylic paint on canvas.  

About the Gallery

The Curt Bessette Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Main Library. It features work by regional and national artists as well as special, themed exhibits. The gallery gives local artists a chance to display their work for sale. 

The namesake of the gallery, Curt Bessette, was a quiet child who spent many hours drawing and creating art of the people and scenes around him. As time passed, his interest in art and talent for various artistic styles only grew until he became known by his peers as the Artist. Mr. Bessette also served on the Boone County Public Library Board of Trustees from July 2016 to February 2017.
