Fay Jones: Las Golondrinas
James Harris Gallery, Seattle, WA - Nov 7 – 23, 2019, & Jan 8 – 25, 2020 (by app. Dec 1 – 30)
Veteran figurative-symbolist painter Fay Jones displays seven new paintings completed since the death of her artist husband Robert C. Jones late in 2018. Widely hailed within the region, Jones has not attained the greater recognition she deserves, despite several museum retrospectives and monographs. Her mixed-media paintings on paper have literary parallels in that their imagery seems consecutive and narrative, juxtaposing animals and humans, landscapes and celestial settings. Now 83, she is at the height of her powers.
