Department Announces Change to Upcoming Black History Art Exhibit

The work of Jerome Jones will be featured along with that of Dawn Cherry Miles in the department's annual Spotlight Gallery Black History Month exhibit scheduled to open with a public reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Jan. 27 at Pine Camp Arts and Community Center. The exhibit, titled “Imagery, Imagination and African Influence,” will no longer feature the work of Thaddeus LaCrette as previously announced.         Jerome Jones, like Dawn Cherry Miles, is a local African-American artist. He has gained national acclaim for his unique and diverse collection of work. His creative style of portraiture reflects the likeness of his subjects and what they love to do.
     Jones also will participate with Miles in the artist’s discussion to take place on Jan. 27 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Pine Camp Theater.
     The theater and the gallery are located within the Pine Camp Arts and Community Center at 4901 Old Brook Rd. Both events are open and free to the public.

     The exhibit will continue to be on display through March 2. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
