|Sheep Jones, “Fish Hooks”|
Our artists often collaborate, but the artists in studio 7 make a habit of it. Just ask Sheep Jones, who helps maintain the Nook, the site of a rotating monthly mini-exhibition just footsteps from her easel. “We’ve been collaborating with other Torpedo Factory artists in the Nook for five to six years now,” Jones says. “My studio mates and I take turns, and it’s up to each artist to feature their own work or collaborate with another artist.”
“Her glass fish and bubble tubes are a delightful complement to my oil paintings of fish,” Jones says. Through April, she and Sigethy invite visitors to plumb their piscatory visions—and ponder how artists who work in contrasting media can see things in distinctive but equally wonderful ways.
See more of the work of Sheep Jones at the Torpedo Factory, at www.sheepjones.com, and at the exhibition “Regarding Nature,” which celebrates 25 years of the Steven Scott Gallery in Baltimore.
