Works of award-winning artist Jean Sbarra Jones were on display in the University’s Connie A. Eastburn Gallery during the Spring 2021 semester. Her exhibit What Dreams May Come, featured acrylic paintings of her signature subject of a dress floating in water. She painted dresses as still-life material until she was on a boat trip with her husband and placed a dress in the ocean. Inspired by the shape and texture of the fabric, the quality of the light, and the differences between the wet and dry areas, the dress became her new subject. Jean’s dresses have traveled from Massachusetts to Aruba, inspiring a body of work rich in narrative and hauntingly beautiful.
