Recently transplanted from Santa Fe's painting, exhibiting and teaching scene, Jakki Kouffman is now living in St. Petersburg, Florida. She's proud to announce that she is now showing her paintings at the following Florida showing venues: the Dunedin Fine Art Center in Dunedin, the Morean Arts Center and Woodfield Fine Art in St. Petersburg.


Winter 2018


Jakki Kouffman will be teaching 6-week courses in both pastel and acrylic painting, as well as a two-day workshop, at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center during the Winter I & II terms. See the website and the printed catalog for dates and times. For full listings on Kouffman's website, see the 2018 Classes, as well as, Workshops pages.

Jakki will be showing a three-part figure drawing at the upcoming Drawing Artists Together show at the Morean Arts Center, 709 Central Ave in St. Petersburg. The opening reception will take place on Friday, January 12, from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. This show commemorates the 40-year commitment by the Morean to their Saturday figure drawing sessions, which Jakki has attended regularly since her arrival in St. Pete in the spring of 2017.

Fall 2017

On November 9th, Kouffman presented an art talk at the Dunedin Fine Art Center's Coffee & Conversation series. The lecture recounted the story of her transition from doing stone sculpture and bronze for a year in Pietrasanta - on a grant from her alma mater, Brandeis University - to working in acrylic, pastel and mixed media today. 


On November 10 & 11, Jakki taught an acrylic workshop called Acrylic, Meet Your Future Better Half. This course explored how combining color with liquid mediums, solid gels and opaque pastes helps to magnify sheen, transparency, texture and chromatic brilliance in acrylic painting.


On Saturday, December 2, she participated in DFAC’s annual Demo Day event. Faculty members in every medium and genre set up their easels and workstations to answer questions from prospective students about upcoming winter term classes. Lots of fun meeting all these prospective students!
