Art Exhibit: “One Song for Three Journeys”

January 12, 2022 @ 9:00 amMarch 29, 2022 @ 4:00 pm CST

One Song for Three Journeys

Join Scarritt Bennett Center for our premier 2022 art exhibit,
“One Song for Three Journeys,” by Henry L. Jones

“One Song for Three Journeys” by Henry L. Jones is a series of 30 abstract paintings of images that explore thoughts, feelings, and ideas flowing along three journeys. Jones painted these images with his Gib Art technique. 

Journey One: The Pursuit of Wholeness
These paintings portray realms of healing and rebirths while overcoming obstacles and setbacks. These paintings symbolize stories shared as lyrics sang.

Journey Two: The Connection of Identity
These paintings delve into subjects of self-love, mirrored inner images and cultural connections. They show unfolded beauty and self-narration. These paintings describe the unveiling of acceptance as a praise in the song.

Journey Three: The Desire for Global Reaching
These paintings are images of interweaving layers of the other journeys. The last path is a bridge which unites the others. The bridged paintings reflect the melody translated as a single whole note. It’s circular symbolism and literal meaning of wholeness of the song vibrates.

“Like done in my griot heritage,” Jones reflects, “my art is storytelling with images. I desire to sing all those stories as art in ‘One Song for Three Journeys’.”

The exhibit will be on display in Laskey Gallery at Scarritt Bennett Center January 5, 2022, through March 29, 2022. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
