An exhibition of paintings by Mark Jones of the HWS art faculty, titled “Bovine,” opened April 8 at Tu Do (Independence) Gallery in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Tu Do is the oldest and one of the most respected galleries in Vietnam.
The show received favorable reviews in all five Vietnamese daily newspapers including the English-language Vetnam News and was the subject of a video article on VTV channel 9 Vietnam National Television.
This is Jones' second solo exhibition in Vietnam in as many years and will be on view until April 20.
In 2005, he exhibited pinhole photographs in a show titled “Special Light – Photographs from Vietnam and Around the World,” at Mais Gallery in Saigon.
Jones and the exhibit were featured in an April 6 story on VietNam Net Bridge.com.
