Morrison House Presents Guy Jones, “A Very Silly Man”


Crow Yo Ma, Guy Jones

And now for something completely different, let us celebrate the bizarre, the unusual, the things that offer an alternative view of reality.  In some cultures the dream world is the real world and the awake world we sort of make up as we go along.

Guy Jones is a self-taught artist who has always had an attraction for the oddities of life.  Raised on a steady diet of “The Twilight Zone”, “The Marx Brothers”, and “Bugs Bunny” he was well on his way to being a very silly man.

Guy will talk about and show works of his illustrative odyssey, from his experience as a children’s book illustrator to his work as an artist at The Torpedo Factory.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 3, 6-8pm

WHERE:  Morrison House, 116 South Alfred Street, Alexandria, VA 22314, Phone: 703-838-8000
