Memory, Mostly Self by Wayson R. Jones

The Fisher Art Gallery at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center will display a unique series of acrylic portrait paintings by artist Wayson R. Jones. The show, Memory, Mostly Self, will be on display in the gallery from June 9 to July 30 with an opening reception scheduled for 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 8. Jones has used old snapshots of himself as a child to influence previous work. For Memory, Mostly Self, he wanted to combine the energy of his childhood image with archetypal images from popular magazines Ebony and Jet.
