Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture presents Jewels, paintings and collages by Wayson Jones. Jewels is a body of work consisting of original paintings and collages in the Stone Tower Gallery. The works can be thought of as abstract, minimal landscapes, which can be seen from a dual perspective: the horizon line seen from a normal view shifts to become a shoreline or border as seen from the air.

Artist Statement:
These paintings and collages exploit the material properties of acrylic paints and gel mediums: transparency, texture, and reflective surface. Many of the pieces can be thought of as abstracted, minimal landscapes, which can be seen from a dual perspective: the horizon line seen from a normal view shifts to become a shoreline, border, or planetary atmosphere as seen from above. The collages are the result of a question of imagination: What would it be like if Earth had multiple moons like other planets in our solar system, moons that appeared to hover closely over the earth?

Gallery Hours are as follows:

  • Saturdays and Sundays 12-6pm

 

The Stone Tower Gallery is located at 7300 MacArthur Boulevard, Glen Echo, MD. For more information visit www.glenechopark.org.
