Gift of Marnie McGarry, London, Ontario

John “Jack” Chambers was a Canadian artist and filmmaker, born in London, Ontario in 1931. After studying at Western University, Jack spent eight years studying and working in Europe. While in Europe he met Pablo Picasso, who suggested he continue his studies in Barcelona.

In the 1960’s his practice shifted from surrealist painting to experimental filmmaking. Chambers was a passionate defender of artists’ rights, and 1967 he founded Canadian Artists’ Representation (CARFAC), now a national organization of artist.
