ART OF THE WEST

MICQAELA JONES

One Story Isn’t Enough

On view in Halleck Bar Gallery until May 23, 2021 “Creating the paintings for this exhibition began with my desire to share pieces that reflect some of the beauty of my Shoshone culture, as well as my love for creation. It is extra special to me, as a Native of Northern Nevada, to share this with my friends and relatives. My goal as an artist has always been to move my viewer to connect with my art through color, vibrance, and texture and to create a story that they can relate to, one that will bring feelings of joy, happiness, and hope. As the year 2020 progressed, I felt it was even more important to create art that reflected that theme. We have all been affected by the pandemic in some way. I included pieces from both of my notable styles—my vibrant colorful palette, as well as my newer, loose contemporary approach. I look forward to hearing about the stories that visitors imagine and feel when they view my art.” In 2005, Micqaela participated in her first juried art show in Saint George, Utah. The following year, her work was featured at three major juried shows, which were a real platform for her career. Since then, Micqaela has shown her award-winning pieces all over the country at art shows and museums. Her paintings are in permanent collections at the Heard Museum, the Museum of Fine Art in Reno, the Northeastern Nevada Museum, as well as in several corporations and in major global collections. Recently, Micqaela was awarded the Design Fellowship Award at the Santa Fe Indian Market. Along with this honor, she was asked to be their 2017 poster artist and took first place at the Red Earth Art Show in Oklahoma. In 2019 and 2020, she was invited to attend the Cowgirl Up! Art Show sponsored by the Smithsonian. This show features the top 50 Western Women artists in the country, which is a true honor for her.
