Jack Wilkinson

Jack Wilkinson, a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, was a highly influential artist and art administrator during the 1960s and 1970s for both the municipality of Victoria and the province of BC. In the 1960s he was staff artist and senior architectural draftsman for Victoria's Department of Public Works, and in 1973 he wrote the department's art policy. Wilkinson was also the chairman for the Provincial Committee on Art and supervised the procurement of 600 artworks to be added to the provincial collection. Additionally, his role allowed him to organize the art commissions for new provincial buildings during this time.

In 1975 Wilkinson decided to work full-time on his art career, and subsequently exhibited his artwork in numerous galleries in BC, Alberta and Ontario. His work is part of many private collections in Canada. He was also commissioned to create major public art pieces, including a sculpture at the BC Provincial School for the Deaf in Burnaby and Royal British Columbia Museum's Carillon tower.
