Jack Bredin has been an artist since he was a kid.  It was always an avocation for him, and his fanciful paintings of Ocean Grove hang in a variety of locations around town. You can see some of his work  on display at the Camp Meeting Association headquarters on Pitman Avenue at Pilgrim Pathway (3 paintings) and at Grove Hall (one painting)

The Ocean Park Gallery on Cookman Avenue in A. Park is showing about ten of his works, and they are for sale.

A few months ago Jack accepted a request from Vicki Bacolo, the one-woman dynamo who every year creates the Doll  House Show at the Historical Society of Ocean Grove Museum.  She brought a doll house to Jack and asked him to create an Ocean Grove scene on the roof.

Jack went to work creating that painting in his kitchen. I saw him at work, and he seemed to relish the assignment.  The result is seen above.

But if you want Jack to paint your roof or your wagon, fuhgetaboutit.  He almost never takes requests.
