Jules Buck Jones: Everglades
July 16 - August 21, 2011
2501 Market Street, Galveston, TX 77550
Inspired by a residency at Florida’s Everglades National Park in 2009, Austin-based artist Jules Buck Jones creates large-scale works on paper featuring amphibians, reptiles and birds he encountered on his visit. Jones lived alone in a cabin during the park’s off season, canoeing through the swamps where he encountered insects, frogs, alligators, hawks, sharks and a Burmese python, while also searching for the elusive Florida Panther.
