Lockport Public Library will host guest lecturer Jack DiMaggio as part of the ongoing John and Dianne Koplas Memorial Lecture Series at 6:30 p.m. May 23 in the Wheeler Room on Floor 2.

DiMaggio, whose topic will be “Imprints Behind the Smile,” is a graduate of Lockport Senior High School and California State College, and taught art at the Lockport High School for 32 years.  He is also a renowned artist, displaying his works at the gallery (Gallery DiMaggio) he and his wife, Kathleen, established here in Lockport. Jack is the father of three married sons and a grandfather of eight.

Since his retirement from teaching, DiMaggio remains an active part of the Lockport community. He continues to paint and draw and selectively takes private art students for consultation. He also judges local art shows and is often requested as an art consultant by individuals, businesses and galleries. In addition to serving on the Boards at the Kenan Center and the Market Street Art Center, he was a member of the Lock Side Art Gallery and continues a long commitment of volunteering for Lockport’s Meals on Wheels.

The family and friends of John and Dianne Koplas established this lecture series in cooperation with Lockport Public Library to honor the Koplas’ devotion to teaching and to celebrate their lifelong passion for learning.
