PONTE VEDRA BEACH. –Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra Beach will exhibit the work of nationally-recognized painters Jennifer J.L. Jones and John Schuyler with an opening reception on Friday, April 13 from 6 to 9 pm at 240 A1A North in Ponte Vedra Beach. The show will feature a new body of work by each of the two artists.
As a gallery favorite, Jennifer J.L. Jones has been with Stellers since 2004. She is an American artist raised in rural Virginia and on the central east coast of Florida. Jones received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois. With an exploration of beauty and energy, Jones’ mixed media paintings are a meditation on the dichotomy of the existence of nature both as corporeal reality and intangible spirituality.
Employing multiple layers of abstraction and combined mediums including a refined glazing technique, Jones creates rich, organic patinas that evoke universal emotional and physical connecting points for the observer. Layers of paint create a palimpsest quality to the work, while the elegant, ever-shifting paintings combine a poetic, sensual grace with consistently bold execution.
