Artist Lecture and reception Thursday, September 7th, 2:30PM-7:00PM

The Wylie and May Louise Jones Gallery is excited to present Monte, a solo exhibition by London-based, Venezuelan born artist Jaime Gili. This body of work represents a conceptual focus on the tangible world around us by way of abstract representations. The paintings reflect a long history of Latin American geometric abstraction that are meant to be experienced in a unique, contemporary display. The colors and textures of the work produce an experience meant to engage the viewer in contemplation of a green space, such as a garden or jungle. Personal interpretation, perspective, and history will all play a vital role in the perception of this unique installation.

The exhibition will be on view from September 7th through October 12th, 2023. The Fall 2023 Jones Gallery hours of operation are: Monday-Thursday: 2 - 5 P.M.
