ARTIST SHEEP JONES SHOWS AT LOCAL COLOR GALLERY
December, January, February
Belfast—Sheep Jones is the featured guest artist at Local Color Gallery for the months of December, January, and February.
Jones, who works in oil and wax, says her paintings begin in layers. “Layers add extra interest, leaving swatches of colors in their wake. These are perfect tidbits for the imagination.” Jones always looks for “the puzzle pieces to suggest a narrative. The thing is, all people have stories. Often, they will look at one of my paintings and recognize in it their own story, their own past, their own dreams.” Some of the stories Jones’s paintings will tell are about bumblebees, birds, and botanicals, figures, fish, and root vegetables.
Born and raised in Waterville, Maine, Jones studied art at the University of Sothern Maine. She has exhibited her work in several solo and group shows and galleries in the US and Europe. In 2003, she was chosen as Artist of the Year at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. She now lives in Belfast, Maine.
