Jarrett Hawkins’ body of work, dating back to 1974, can be seen in cities, parks, corporate, and private collections in Ohio and various other states throughout the U.S. Though he achieved success early in his career, he stopped making art for a decade and pursued other interests, including becoming a self-taught master furniture maker.
He began his return to art making in the late 1980s. He and his partner, Celene Hawkins, also an artist, started Hawkins & Hawkins Custom in 1994.
Jarrett was a Fellow at the Artist’s Enclave at I-Park in 2008. His work was exhibited nationally in 2009 in New York City, Kingsport, TN, Indianapolis, IN, and Clearwater, FL. His large-scale commission work Limits of Spoken Language: Congeries, was installed at Kent State University in August 2010 and he has a solo show at the Weston Art Gallery in Cincinnati this fall.
