In Tandem: Works By Fay Jones And Robert C. Jones
James Harris Gallery, Seattle, WA - Jan 9 – Feb 23, 2019; G. Gibson Gallery, Seattle. Jan 26 – March 1, 2019
While Robert C. Jones was teaching art at the University of Washington, his wife, Fay, was home raising their four children – and painting nonstop. Both slowly developed their careers at di erent paces, until Fay’s figurative fantasies attained the same recognition as Robert’s thickly gestured abstractions – the result of his three-week miracle master class with Hans Hofmann in 1952. Now in their 80s, Jones and Jones build on a clutch of solo art museum surveys, extensive critical writings and numerous gallery shows.
