Gallery St. Thomas Exhibits Watercolors and Prints by Teri Jones


March 13, 2008 – Gallery St. Thomas will introduce "Blue WaterColors: Annapolis to Bonaire," a new collection of watercolor originals and limited-edition print series by Teri Jones. There will be a meet-the-artist reception held from 3-8 p.m., on Friday, March 14, at the Gallery at No. 1 Main Street, upper level, across from Cardow.
"This will be the fourth solo show for Teri Jones sponsored by Gallery St. Thomas," said gallery owner Claire Ochoa. "She puts the ever-changing colors and moods of Caribbean sea and sky on paper so well that her work stirs many memories for both local collectors and island visitors."
"I strive to capture those moments that take your breath away, that give you a sense of reverence for the wonders of nature," says Jones.
Many of those moments happen," she added, "when you unexpectedly come upon a beautiful hidden beach, or watch clouds change color and shape before your eyes. In the Caribbean, if you stand in one place and turn in four different directions, there are four different skies. In Bonaire, for instance, the undersides of clouds are often pink because they reflect the sand and salt flats. Out at sea, the clouds are often tinged with blue or even green."
Teri always has painting supplies on hand and loves giving lessons to beginners as she visits islands from the coast of Venezuela to the Bahamas. She finds teaching the home-schooled children of sailing families to be especially satisfying.
In addition to new originals, Teri will present "Cloudlight" a new limited edition signed and numbered reproduction of 50 pieces for 2008. A companion floral still life, also a limited edition reproduction, will be released that night.
The exhibit will run through April 26 and is open to the public. All work is for sale. For more information, contact Gallery St. Thomas at 777-6363 or online at online at www.GalleryStThomas.com
