Henry Wanton Jones – Artist Biography

Henry Wanton Jones

Gallery Gevik is pleased to represent the works of the painter Henry Wanton (Jimmy) Jones. Whimsical canvases feature his signature horses and riders, nudes, self-portraits, still-lifes, equestriennes, masked strangers and dogs, all filtered by a hybrid Mexican/Canadian twilight. They present a blend of eerie humour that is coupled with passion and desire, a dark eroticism that one cannot escape.

Born in 1925 in Waterloo Quebec, Henry Wanton Jones studied at the Art School of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts under Group of Seven alumnus, Arthur Lismer. He has held solo exhibitions in prestigious galleries in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, beginning with Agnes Lefort Gallery in 1953. In 1956 he began exhibiting with the Canadian Group of Painters. In 1963 he won First Prize at the Canadian Group of Painters Exhibition held at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. He has taught at McGill University and Concordia University (then Sir George Williams) and is represented in many private and public collections in North America.

Daphne OdjigDaphne Odjig, Canadian Indigenous Artist and Icon Dies at 97. Click here for more details.

Odjig is frequently referred to as the "Grandmother of Indigenous Art." She has been the recipient of many awards, honours and recognitions for her works, to name a few: The Order of Canada, the Governor General's Award, and eight Honorary Doctorates. Her works have been shown in the National Gallery of Canada, The McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Art Gallery of Ontario.

She established the first native-run fine art print house in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1971. Known as 'Odjig Indian Prints,' this print house was so successful that it evolved into an Indigenous gallery space in 1974, called the New Warehouse Gallery, run by Odjig and her husband, Chester Beavon. She was also a founding member of the Indian Group of Seven. This artistic group's purpose was to promote Contemporary Indigenous art and artists.
