Ending Friday, October 8: "Barbara Jones: Her Life in Paint" at the Art Car Museum
  • "Barbara Jones was a highly regarded Houston painter who passed away last year. She practiced her distinctive painting technique while studying art at the University of Houston under professors Richard Stout and John Alexander. Years ago, Barbara described her passion for painting quite truthfully,“The paint drives me, I do not drive the paint”. Her vibrant use of color, accurate employment of perspective and her inspired talent in communicating the genuine essence of those in her portraits are just a few of the significant aspects of her paintings. Her passionate disapproval of war, killing and senseless violence is evident in her “God” and “Girls with Guns” series. Through her self portraits, landscapes, portraits of friends and family; Barbara Jones offers the world a glimpse into her life,in paint."
