- ”To have a message or an emotional stimulation soaked up by an uncertainty of the Artist’s tool — color — shape — form — which are the punctuation of his message, is a discouraging thing. This is the kind of anemia I’m trying to eliminate.”
- Jack Zajac is an American artist who was born December 13, 1929 in Youngstown, Ohio. In 1946, his family moved to southern California. After he graduated from high school, he got a job at Kaiser Steel Mill. This employment helped finance his study of art at Scripps College in Claremont, California from 1949 to 1953.
- Though Zajac studied art with Millard Sheets at Scripps College, and was a member of the art community that developed in Claremont, California during the mid-20th century, he was admitted as a special, non-degree seeking student. The reason that he was not admitted as a regular student was because Scripps College was then, and remains today, a women's college. Jack Zajac is married to artist, Corda Eby. They have two children, Aaron Zajac and Christian Zajac and three grandchildren, Camille Zajac, Phoebe Zajac and Jack Zajac. His son, Christian Zajac and granddaughter, Camille Zajac are both artists.
- In 1948, Zajac won a scholarship at a California State Fair student exhibition in Sacramento. He was named recipient of the Purchase Prize at the Pasadena Art Museum in 1950, which led to his first one-man exhibit. He is known for his sculptures in bronze and marble, as well as his figurative paintings. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Rome Prize. He is a member of The American Academy of Arts and Letters and the National Academy of Design. He has been an Artist in Residence at the American Academy in Rome, Dartmouth College and the University of California, Santa Cruz.
