In his forties, his lifelong joy in building things morphed into designing and building fine furniture. Combining functionality with a clean elegant look, his pieces are strongly influenced by Shaker designs and the Arts-and-Crafts era.

"Ukraine Blue and Yellow"

 During the month of July, In-Town Gallery, in honor of the courageous people of Ukraine, will not only show artistic pieces featuring the “Blue and Yellow” national colors, but will also donate 10% of sales revenue received during its July First Friday event to the Ukraine Gospel Church in Chattanooga.  Additionally, In-Town Gallery will encourage donations on behalf of the Church, all of which will be used for needed humanitarian purposes, including the purchase of food and blankets in support of displaced citizens in this amazing Country.

 Jan Lamoreaux painted a silk scarf featuring yellow flowers on a blue background entitled “Where Have All the Flowers Gone”.  The title refers to a folk song made popular by the trio Peter, Paul, and Mary (lyrics by Pete Seeger) which is a lament on the sorrows of war.
