Heather Jones and Jeffrey Cortland Jones, wife and husband, will display their works in a dual collection at the Volunteer State Community College Art Gallery in August and September, opening the fall season for the gallery, according to a release.
The Ohio couple has exhibited their works nationally and internationally, and they both make extensive use of colors with his pieces often paint on panels and her creations in fabric.
The release says Heather Jones is a three-time winner of the Project Modern Quilt Design competition.
“My work explores the formal possibilities of color and shape, often through geometric and striped compositions,” Heather Jones says in the release. “I am drawn to fabric, to its familiarity, its inherent qualities of saturated color and textural luminosity, and its invitation to be touched. Fabric reflects, captures, and interacts with light in a way that no paint can.”
Jeffrey Cortland Jones is represented by a number of galleries world-wide including: Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; Seattle; New York; Brisbane, Australia; and Edinburgh, Scotland.
“I am interested in locating, apprehending, then releasing the resistance of a color then surrendering to it a hard edge as it softens; the slight peeking that come from covering and layering that space between the wall and object,” he says in the release.
“Some Remain: Heather Jones and Jeffrey Cortland Jones” runs from Aug. 26 until Sept. 19.
The Vol State Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Steinhauer-Rogan-Black (SRB) Humanities Building on the Gallatin campus at 1480 Nashville Pike.
Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information call 615-230-3202.
The exhibit is free and open to the public.
