Biography from McBride Gallery:
Maryland artist, R. Benjamin Jones studied at the Maryland Institute of Fine Arts in Baltimore, the University of Maryland and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.  He is an accomplished painter, portraying scenes of rural Maryland that few have experienced.

R. Benjamin Jones paints in acrylic on paper or panel.  He exhibits his work in galleries in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maryland.  He has had museum shows at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Hurlbutt Museum in Greenwich.  His work is in the permanent collection of the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Hagerstown, Maryland, and his paintings went on a four-year tour with a special exhibit for the Smithsonian from 1981-1984.

R. Benjamin Jones has been a resident of Washington County, Maryland for the past 30 years.  During that time he has achieved recognition as one of the most active realist painters of the rural landscape, Amish farm life and the lives of the Chesapeake waterman.  He contributes to his community in service as a Presbyterian pastor of a small church and he and his wife Becky regularly donate time and talent to benefit community institutions.

Painting full time since 1979, Ben paints a variety of subject matter.  He paints the Amish of Lancaster County with the quiet dignity that they themselves possess.  He has painted the Chesapeake Bay waterman, their skipjacks and oysterboats that ply the waters of the Bay.  For many of his collectors, to experience a Jones painting, is to experience rural life in Maryland.  He paints the rural farm animals, work horses, pigs, sheep and cows, frequently attending the Amish spring auctions where he can observe the families as they conduct farm business: buying seed, trading farm animals, selling handmade quilts.  He paints Brown Swiss cows with such detail and richness of color that it draws the viewer to appreciate these 'cow portraits' for their unique beauty. Ben also loves gardens and loves painting them both on Cape Cod as well as his own roses, Tiffany roses, which is a particular favorite.

This versatile, sensitive, gifted artist has his work in numerous private and corporate collections.

McBride Gallery is pleased to represent the work of R. Benjamin Jones.
