Event Description: “The next solo exhibition of new paintings by prolific St. Croix artist John Obafemi Jones is not to be missed. 'Fire Down There: Uncompromising Expressions of Sounds and Color,' opens on March 5 with a reception from 5-8 p.m. at Walsh Metal Works Gallery. According to Jones, his artistic excursions are firmly rooted in a desire to make his painting as ethereal as music and dance. The exhibition will be an especially unique exploration of the dynamic relationships between the various genres of the three art forms. Through experimentation with materials and techniques Jones achieves what he calls 'Visual Music.' It is within this context the artist integrates Afro-Atlantic culture, and his love for the music and the history of jazz into an innovative visual language. It will be a treasured opportunity for exhibit goers to meet and interpret for themselves the many meanings of 'The Fire Down There.'” — Read more: http://www.johnobafemijones.com/#!news/ck0qFor further information: http://www.johnobafemijones.com/#!news/ck0q and http://www.johnobafemijones.com/.
