Quinton Oliver Jones Studio Tour
Nov 11 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Enjoy a special opportunity to experience the environment in which Quinton Oliver Jones created his fantastical paintings. A guided tour of his former home, including his workspace and many more paintings, will be part of the experience. A small reception is included. Reservations required. Limited availability.

The paintings of Quinton Oliver Jones occupy a fantastical, vividly imaginative space. Swirling landscapes inhabited by human and animal figures, codes and symbols, evoke dreams or fairy tales where anything can happen. His inventive use of colors outside of nature to describe the natural world turn landscapes into dreamscapes, often with a vibrating, sometimes eerie glow. The human characters often seem at the mercy of whimsical, hybrid animal creatures that rule the canvases, adding a psychological element.
