Husband and Wife Artists Hang Together in Museum

UPLAND, Calif. (PRWEB) February 20, 2019 — Husband and wife artists Rod Jones and Inci Jones will be shown together for the first time as part of a group show entitled: A Dialogue with Nature, at the IEMA a Southern California art museum. The exhibit will also feature several Southern California artists along with two husband and wife artists, two brothers that are artists, and a father and son artist. A Dialogue with Nature is the next in a series of exhibits. The prior show entitled Discovering Receptive Abstract Patternism, was the first show in 2019, kicking off the 6th year of the IEMA museum.
Rod Jones, Inci Jones’ husband, and fellow artist just wrapped up his solo exhibit at the IEMA, January 6th – February 10, 2019. Rod states, “My solo show was a wonderful way to start off the New Year, but I’m eminently more excited to share a museum wall with my very talented artist wife Inci Jones. She is an excellent painter, but her photography turned digital art is unequaled, quite beautiful and very cerebral and original.”
Mr. Jones’ artist wife, Inci Jones passionately refers to her art as: Making the camera see beyond reality. When she is not painting, she is out photographing self-selected images and spends hours digitally manipulating the image and creating what is considered to be exceptionally original. Her art works are quickly becoming a favorite among art collectors and interior designers.
With spring around the corner, this timely exhibit, Dialogue with Nature explores not only the relationship the artists have with the natural world, but also how it’s interpreted and visualized.
“The artist should not only paint what he sees before him,” claimed Caspar David Friedrich, “but also what he sees in himself.” He should have “a dialogue with nature.” Friedrich’s words encapsulate two central elements of the romantic conception of landscape: close observation of the natural world and the importance of the imagination.
The exhibit is being curated by IEMA Director and museum Founder Gene Sasse, who has successfully managed the museum for six years states, “I look for and select artworks that can be tied together to tell a story; where the whole is much stronger than each piece by itself. Also, when curating I like to add a mix of artworks from artists that create in various art media. From representational paintings & drawings to contemporary art, photography and sculpture.” Gene goes on to say, “As a photographic artist myself, I can appreciate artworks in all their various forms & creative expressions.”
The exhibit, Dialogue with Nature runs February 24 through March 31st, with the opening reception February 24th 2-5pm. The museum is currently located in its temporary home at: 1334 North Benson Avenue, Unit D, Upland, California 91786. The telephone number: 909-941-3993
