Jensen will touch on several key influencers in Lewis’ life, including his work with the Rehoboth Art League and his love and depiction of Delaware’s coast and people. This program will also include recollections on pre-recorded video provided by Jack Lewis' daughter Heather Lewis, who resides in Maine and is an artist herself.
