UNC - Charlotte in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Louis Jones from the Collection of Sonia and Isaak Luski
North Carolina native Louis Jones will exhibit paintings spanning 45 years of his career from the collection of Sonia and Isaak Luski in the Rowe Arts Main Gallery at UNC - Charlotte, from Oct. 7 - 31, 2003.
Jones born Feb. 22, 1943 obtained a BS in fine arts with a teaching emphasis from East Carolina State University and a MFA in painting and ceramics from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Jones taught studio art at the University of Idaho in Moscow, ID, for two years then four years at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. He moved to just outside of Albany and taught at Albany Junior College and Attica State Prison. Jones also taught at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA, and the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, returning to Asheboro, NC, where he now resides.
Jones uses acrylics in a "Superealist" style but in the traditional technique of egg tempera. Many of his images contain little quirks and visual reference to objects that have double meanings or size proportions that are deceiving to the eye.
