The Lorenzo Art Series will launch its first show of the 2013-2014 season with “A Diverse Palette” featuring artist Sarah Jones on November 3.
“I am drawn to the transient elements of urban culture, like graffiti, construction sites, cranes, scaffolding and tankers – things that move in and out of the urban landscape,” says Jones.
Jones, a UNB Saint John Alumna (BA ’07), will present her new show “Trade Route” from November 3 – December 13 at the Faculty-Staff Lounge, Ward Chipman Art Gallery, UNB Saint John campus.
“In the case of Trade Route, I have drawn on the industrial and shipping structures of Saint John’s harbour, an established stop for a number of commercial trade routes, and focused on that moment of loading/off-loading, cargo changing, moving cranes and train cars bustling.”
Jones, the recent Young Entrepreneur of the Year awarded by the Saint John Board of Trade (SJBOT) will team up with select high school students from the Promise Partnership, winners of the Big Heart Award, for a charcoal drawing art workshop beforehand. Their work will also be displayed at the launch.
Join us for the Opening Reception from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, Sunday, November 3 at the Faculty-Staff Lounge, Ward Chipman Art Gallery. Admission is free.
