Monty & Marty Jones

Gaslight Art Colony is pleased to present Monty Jones and Marty Jones for the June show! The June show opening is on Saturday, June 16th from 5:00-8:00PM. Be sure to register for a chance to win a free children’s class. An adult may register for a child’s class to be given away in the form of a drawing. A discount coupon to the Main Street Supper Club is also given to everyone who comes to the opening. This father and son pair paint and photograph their passions. Monty Jones had a deep interest in drawing and painting from a very early age and he actually subscribed to a mail-order art course in his younger days. He never quite completed the course due to growing family commitments and working twelve hour days in the printing industry. So his artistic desires were put on hold until retirement at age sixty.

Monty Jones

Monty was one of seven original founders of River City Art Association about nine years ago [fall of 2008] has been very involved in all their activities over the years. This has led to being involved in Gaslight and several other art organizations in this area Monty likes to draw and paint all things that he may be passionate about, which includes a lot of subjects. He is probably best known for his wildlife art, but due to involvement in auto racing and automotive interests he really loves to draw and paint cars. Monty has been in several exhibitions and art shows up and down the Wabash Valley and Indianapolis area. Monty joined Indiana Wildlife Artists in 2011 and has won several first and second place awards in that time. Monty has also been a member of Covered Bridge Art Association for several years [associate member] He works out of a studio behind his home in Terre Haute, and has been married to his wife, Phyllis, for over fifty years. They have three adult children, Marty, Robert, and Barbara

 

Marty Jones

Marty is a 53 year old photographer living near Terre Haute, Indiana. “My father, Monty “Indiana” Jones, has always been the real artist in the family!” By studying his paintings at an early age, Marty became interested in art and photography. To this day he likes to study famous paintings to be inspired, gain ideas, and improve photography skills. He has been taking photos since his parents gave me my first Kodak camera at age eight. Marty’s occupation is working as a Regulatory and Safety Consultant in the Electric Utility Industry. He learned to operate
a camera through practice or trial and error. Today, he continues to learn photography and software by watching some of the widely available video tutorials and blogs.
