SARAH JONES + JONES GALLERY + A YEAR-LONG MISSION TO CHART SAINT JOHN AND ITS ENVIRONS.

From October 2019 to October 2020, Sarah Jones will create one hundred paintings. Each work will follow along a pre-determined route, one after the other, winding around the Harbour, through the South End, and Courtenay Bay.

The entire project will be exhibited at Jones Gallery in October 2020. This will be Sarah’s largest and most methodical project yet - a survey of her favourite vantage points, a compendium of our urban and industrial landscape.

 

WHY

2020 is the ten-year anniversary of Sarah’s studio! That’s right. Ten years ago, Sarah opened her first studio on Germain Street next to Backstreet Records (hi Gordie). She’s added a big dog and new spaces and a business partner along the way. And Saint John, you’ve been there providing support and inspiration-fodder all along the way. Here’s to you.

Also, she likes big sequential projects. This is a throwback/homage to 2012’s Project 100.


PROJECT TIMELINE

The Survey Project begins in October 2019 and will conclude in October 2020. Sarah will work on the series throughout the year, following a pre-determined (but only known to her!) route through the Saint John landscape. She will post regular updates on her progress and location throughout the project.

All Survey Project paintings will be revealed at the end of the year at an exhibition at Jones Gallery.


PAINTING SPECS

Each painting is 12”x12”. Executed Sarah-style. There will be one hundred of them.


HOW TO PURCHASE A PAINTING

Each numbered painting (Painting No. 1, Painting No. 2, etc.) are available for PRE-PURCHASE for $500 (plus hst) until October 2020. Once the paintings are revealed in the 2020 exhibition, the price returns to the regular 12”x12” rate of $700.

THE PRE-PURCHASE CAVEAT: To qualify for the special pre-purchase rate, there is a catch. You are purchasing one of the Survey paintings sight unseen - no backsies or tradesies - but you are then guaranteed to receive your numbered painting (at a $200 savings) at the end of the exhibition.
