August Gallery Hop to feature the drawings of Doris Jones Posted onJuly 31, 2012byadmin
Artworks Around Town eagerly awaits the return of one of its own, when artist Doris Jones' work will be featured in the Studio Gallery during the month of August. The exhibit will be introduced Friday, August 3rd at the Gallery Hop. The opening starts at 5:00 and the evening concludes at 8:00. Artworks is located in the North end of the historic Centre Market at 2200 Market Street in Wheeling. The Hop is free and open to all, and visitors will be treated to refreshments and music, as well as the opportunity to meet the visiting artist.
Doris was a founding member of the Artworks Around Town Gallery and one of its most active participants, frequently offering classes and workshops as well as showcasing her own art in the member's area of the Gallery. Unlike many of the other Gallery artists, Doris did not grow up in this area. She arrived in the Ohio Valley by a circuitous route. She was born and raised in England and received her art education at the Bromley Art College in Kent. Describing her schooling, she said that the first two years concentrated on drawing which she considers basic to all other forms and representations in art and which is featured in much of her work. The last two years included subjects which might not be so commonly taught at American art schools, such as anatomy and architecture. However, a careful viewing of her pictures might give the observer some idea as to how these disciplines influenced her work. Following her graduation she worked in London as a graphic artist/illustrator for department stores. A vacation trip to El Paso, Texas to visit a sister proved to be a life changing experience as she never returned to England except to visit. She met and married her husband, moved to Pittsburgh, and subsequently to the Ohio Valley. Although she identifies drawing as her first love as a medium, Doris also enjoys working in watercolor and pastel, both of which rely heavily on drawing. Describing her technique, she uses a drip pen and India ink and likes to work with different types of paper and pens which she says is, "All fun, to try and give a different look to my work". She also frequently combines pen and ink with watercolor. Her work has been exhibited in many local and regional juried shows and earned numerous awards. She was an instructor at Oglebay Institute's Stifel Center and at Wheeling Jesuit University. Her work is in many private collections as well as permanent collections at Ohio University, Bethany College, Belmont Technical College, and Zanesville Art Museum. She is a member of the Ohio Watercolor Society, the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society, and South East Ohio Watercolor Society. Now a resident of Andover, Ohio, Doris lost no time in involving herself with the art community in that area. She has taught drawing classes in Andover and is currently exhibiting with the Ohio Watercolor Society in the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center.

Slowing down has never occurred to local artist Doris Jones.
An avid painter, world traveler and adept gardener, Jones is in no hurry to take a break from her active lifestyle, although she is in her eighth decade.
Jones was born in England, and came to America initially for a short visit with her sister, who was living in Texas.
Before moving to America, Jones studied art for four years at Bromley College of Art near her native area of Kent.
"I've been in art all my life," Jones said.
While in Texas, she found a job doing pen and ink drawings for a department store.From there, she met her husband and moved East.After the move, Jones took a similar job at Kauffman's department store in downtown Pittsburgh.
After her four children were older, the St. Clairsville resident taught art at Wheeling Jesuit College, Wheeling Country Day School and Oglebay Institute's Stifel Fine Arts Center.She also gave private lessons, but due to traveling, ceased offering lessons to aspiring artists earlier this year.
The octogenarian painter is still extremely active in the local art scene in the Ohio Valley, however.Jones has been a member of Artworks Around Town since its inception 10 years ago and currently has work displayed at the gallery in the Centre Market gallery in Center Wheeling.She can be seen weekly at the gallery.
"If we have artwork in the gallery, we have to work," she stated.
She also belongs to the Steubenville Art Association as well as the Southeastern Watercolor Society.She previously had been a member of the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society, but because of the drive from her home in St. Clairsville, has opted to remain more active locally.
A frequent traveler, Jones likes to go back to England in the spring and autumn of each year.
"I love to see the art shows in London," Jones said."It is also so nice to see friends and relatives that are still there.My next trip will be to see an aunt who is living in Scotland."
After the death of her husband in 1984, Jones decided to go back to England.While there, she took a course on British Art at Oxford University.
"Of course, I had studied that before, but I wanted to take a class at Oxford," she said.
Jones, with a friend from Detroit whom she met at Oxford, enjoys taking a trip overseas every year.To date, Jones has experienced Africa where she visited Kenya for an African safari, Russia and Central Asia, as well as China, Australia and New Zealand.While in Peru she climbed Machu Picchu and toured the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador.She has also had the chance to visit the Balkan States, Switzerland and Bavaria in eastern Germany, where she visited "everywhere Martin Luther had been."
Jones also has taken trips to Italy and Tuscany that were strictly art tours.
While she tries to look for art museums at every destination, Jones said she rarely has time to paint while abroad.
"I take a lot of photographs, but I'm not a photographer, as such," she said."There are times I will create a painting from one of the photographs."
Jones' main interest in art lies in landscapes, flowers and animal life, and she works mainly in watercolors.However, she enjoys pen and ink drawings, and occasionally switches to oil paints or chalk pastels.
"I don't like abstract - everything I paint is realistic, so you can recognize it," Jones said.
Jones has an extensive flower garden that surrounds her house.
"I like gardening; the only thing I don't do is cut the grass," she said.
