SUPPORT Jason Talley (MFA 2008)

 

Jason Talley with his wife, Jaclyn Brown


Originally from Washington, DC, Jason Talley (MFA 2008) moved to New York in 2006 after graduating from the Corcoran College of Art. While at the Academy, Jason was awarded two of the schools highest honors - the StratReal Foundation Grant, a scholarship program where Jason mentored New York City public school children, and the Prince of Wales Foundation Scholarship, a summer Residency in Normandy, France. He also met Jaclyn Brown (MFA 2009). They married shortly after her graduation from the Academy.

 

Since graduation, Jason's work has been in galleries throughout New York, including Island Weiss, Dean Projects, Lyons Weir, KGB and Sloan Fine Art. A full-time painter, Jason also works in artist Yigal Ozer's studio. Jason and Jaclyn are an integral part of the art community in Bushwick. Their talent, perseverance and imagination are inspiring.

 

On August 27, 2012 Jason Talley (MFA 2008) was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. It has been a long and difficult year for Jason and his wife, Jaclyn Brown (MFA 2009) as they dealt with this sudden life change bravely. With heavy heart, we were saddened to hear of Jason’s passing on August 3, 2013.

 

Jaclyn and their family have asked that neither flowers nor gifts be sent. Instead, she would be honored if you would donate in to the Academy’s Jason Talley Scholarship Fund in his memory, contact Lisa Kirk or donate to Legal Health (a division of NYLAG) which helps those with serious health conditions.  


Three ways to donate:

  1. Donate to the Academy’s Jason Talley Scholarship Fund
  2. Donate to Legal Health (a division of NYLAG) which helps those with serious health conditions.  
  3. Contact Lisa Kirk

 

In the Fall of 2012, The Academy held a benefit auction with the following work that was donated by Jason and Jaclyn's friends and Academy Alumni. All proceeds supported Jason Talley.
