John F. (Jack) Eyler
Jack Eyler graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism in 1952 with a major in advertising. He retired in 1986 as CEO of an advertising agency.
During his years at Mizzou he drew cartoons for the campus humor magazine Showme, was art director for a production of the musical Carousel, and was the producer for two years of the Savitar Frolics, a campus show of musical skits.
Over the years since then, Jack has painted watercolors. He paints a wide variety of subjects, primarily from photographs, including candid pictures of people, pets and wild life as well as community landmarks, events, historic buildings, personal residences, still lifes, old barns and landscapes, particularly winter scenes. His studio is located on a farm outside Columbia.
