River City Art Association and the Vigo County Public Library will feature the photographic works of Marty L. Jones throughout November in the library at Seventh and Poplar streets.
Jones is a self-taught wildlife and nature photographer from Terre Haute, who has had an interest in photography since the 1970s. He photographs a variety of subjects with an emphasis on Indiana birds. Bird photography is preferred as it tends to be the most challenging, both technically and artistically. To date, he has photographed over 300 different species of birds, all within the borders of Indiana.
Jones often provides presentations about the birds he has photographed and enjoys sharing photo techniques. While his primary aim is to create art with photographs, he also strives to document birds with an eye toward conservation and education. This has led him to volunteer his time and photography skills with several local and national groups such as the Wabash Valley and Indiana Audubon Society, Oaubache Land Conservancy, River City Art Association and the Nature Conservancy.
Recent images by Jones have appeared in print and online publications, including those produced by The Journal of Zoology, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Philadelphia Zoo, USFWS, Audubon Society and Northern Indiana Lakes magazine. To discuss stock use or printing of specific images, contact Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jones’ work also will be featured in December in RCAA’s Artist of the Month gallery in Sycamore Manor and in January in the art association’s Artist of the Month gallery in Harrison College.
