Answering the Call: Art Quilts and Mixed Media

Feb 24 - May 9, 2019

An exhibit of works by Asake Denise Foye Jones
Tree Rooms Gallery. Free and open to the public!

Artist's Talk & Reception: February 24, 2019, 2-4pm.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT: “This body of work is guided by a spiritual urging/voice and creative exploration. It’s a letting go of what I think others think about who I am, what I do, and what is art. Like me, the work is an eclectic expression, using a mixture of material and techniques presented as art quilts and mixed media.”
