Columbus Museum of Art Presents Murray Jones: Unfolding Vision
Murray Jones, American, 1915 – 1964, Untitled, c. 1951, Pastel on paper. Gift of Michael Jones, 1992.010.010.a.
COLUMBUS, OH.- The Columbus Museum of Art presents Murray Jones: Unfolding Vision, on view through March 1, 2009. Exhibited together for the first time, the some fifty works in Murray Jones: Unfolding Vision demonstrate his affinity for the spiritual and otherworldly and his willingness to experiment with techniques and materials. In his work, Murray Jones fuses his traditional training and the artistic innovations of his time with his contemplative, profound worldview and his experience of foreign landscapes and cultures. This is Murray Jones presents drawings, prints, paintings, and collages that address a range of subject matter and span his career. From his surreal, representational student etchings to the abstract, Asian influenced collages completed nearly thirty years later, this exhibition provides an opportunity to witness the unfolding of Jones? unique personal vision.

Jones was a student at the Art Institute of Chicago and a teacher at Michigan State University and The Ohio State University. He was also a frequent traveler who spent time in Tahiti, Mexico, the American Southwest, and Japan. Some of the journals and sketchbooks which chronicle Jones? experiences will also be on display.

This exhibition was organized by The Columbus Museum of Art with works from our own permanent collection.
