KINGSPORT, TN — On Thursday April 5, art lovers are treated to paintings by Jonesborough artist Charles T. Jones at Impressions Fine Art, Kingsport, Tennessee. An opening reception for the artist is held Thursday, April 5 from 5-8 p.m.

At first glance, the paintings are a delicious intermingling of color, line and texture. Upon deeper inspection, the paintings reveal images of birds, animals and human figures. His work reflects his interest in the psychological states of creatures confronted by the fact of being alive. He transforms myths, folk-tales, music and dance into visual metaphors where images, color and form gather and play.

Jones grew up in Wayne and Greene counties in North Carolina. He graduated from East Carolina University with a BFA before earning his MFA from the University of Washington in Seattle. His work has appeared in many local and regional art shows including the 27th and 28th Annual First Tennessee Art Shows and the 2013-2017 Jonesborough Open Juried Art Shows, where he won numerous awards including Best in Show in 2015.
