A native Californian, Jack Dudley was a National Watercolor Society Signature Member and lifetime affiliate of the Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts, where he exhibited for thirty-eight years. He trained at the Art Center School in Los Angeles, served in World War II, and was a commercial artist until the 1960s. He then made fine art a full-time career, and his watercolors and oils are represented in many galleries. From worldwide travels, especially in Latin America, Dudley produced prized portrayals of people in their native elements. His wildlife art and landscapes also garnered plaudits. He made many trips to Grand Canyon with his wife, Nadine. In 1996 he won the Grand Canyon Purchase Award in the annual Arts for the Parks competition for his painting View from the North Rim, now part of Grand Canyon Associations permanent collection. Since then, his family has created the Jack Dudley Memorial Fund to underwrite further artistic awards and acquisitions and has donated Dudley artwork to be sold by Grand Canyon Association in support of the fund.
