Feb. 16, 2018, “3 dimensional Expressions”: Artist Talk by Ed Jonas

Join nationally renowned portraitist and sculptor, Edward Jonas for a discussion of his approach to painting and sculpture, followed by an artist reception on Feb 16th, the night before his 2-day workshop, Sculpture for Painters, at Southern Atelier.

Free to the public! All are welcome!

One belief has accompanied Florida artist Edward Jonas throughout his 40-year career: it is that while abstract art speaks to the artist, realistic art speaks to the world. His high regard for the classical approach in both artistic techniques and teachings has brought not only high demand for his work but made him an advocate for change in art education programs. This belief led Ed to be co-founder and current Chair of the Portrait Society of America, a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to promoting the practice and appreciation of fine art portraiture and figurative works. This twenty-year-old international society, which is headquartered in Tallahassee, is supported by over 3,100 members that represent every state in the union and over twenty foreign countries.

Portrait subjects include Governor Buddy MacKay, U.S. Ambassador to Viet Nam, Pete Peterson, families of professional golfer Greg Norman, Fuzzy Zoeller and Jack Nicolas. He is also working on Governor Rick Scott’s official Gubernatorial portrait painting.  Recently, Ed has gained notice for his sculpture. His monumental bronze of two football players titled Sportsmanship stands at the west side of Doak Campbell Stadium. This past January saw the unveiling of his bronze of the founder of both Florida State University and the University of Florida, Frances Wayles Eppes, grandson of Thomas Jefferson.
Ed continues to make Florida his home and his studio time is now divided between assisting the Portrait Society in its educational mission and his portrait painting and sculpture commissions.
