Photography has taught me to see. Before photography I could only look. Seeing is much more exciting. It is my hope that through my work you will be able to see more clearly the created  world and the world we continue to create.

I have always felt that music touches the soul in a way that nothing else does. Music helps one feel the power beyond. But maybe song is not singular with this endeavor. Maybe art can strike the soul as powerfully as music. 

Some of my most exciting work is the time when I am alone behind the lens. My calmest time in life is at night shooting a scene that cannot normally be seen but is always there; the milky way, an hour after sunset with the rich blue sky, a blue heron standing in the water on a foggy night. Life is always around us if we can only see.

George DeWolfe, a master printer said  “A masterpiece is a simple act of responding authentically to the world in a moment of time.” When I click the shutter I may be in a crowd of people or I may be in a gentle breeze but I am always alone looking through the lens trying to capture the moment, not a second in time but that fleeting moment. 

I enjoy the creative process. It is my hope that my images provide you many moments of enjoyment.

Allen Jones

For over 30 years, I’ve been a photographer, filmmaker, and all around creative person traveling the world on assignments for companies like General Electric and Lockheed Martin.


In more recent years, I decided to concentrate my efforts in still photography with a focus on Gulf Coast landscapes and architecture.


So today, you might find me on the beach before dawn looking for that next amazing sunrise. Or maybe at sunset shooting one of this region’s iconic settings. I’m shooting all the time and expanding my catalog weekly, so to see my latest work please visit me on the web or like me on Facebook at /photographybyallenjones.

August 2015 Featured Artist

Join us August 5th from 5-8pm for this months featured artist

Lisa Mella Burridge

Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 11.42.43 AM

 

In viewing her artwork, one would have to say that Lisa Mella Burridge’s philosophy is definitely art imitates life. Grounded in Realism, and self-taught, her style is an attempt to celebrate life by paying close attention to detail, trying to capture it but humbly accepting that it is impossible to improve on it. Immortalizing the emotion in a child’s portrait, the serenity of a beachscape or the simple beauty of the colors in a blue crab are some of the motivating factors for Lisa’s artistic endeavors.

Born and raised in the south, with its great natural diversity, there is never a shortage of subject matter for her to choose from. She enjoys working mostly on a collaborative and commissioned basis, in order to highlight the importance of the client’s vision, taste, and personal style. Teaching is another way Lisa nurtures her passion for art. With 14 years experience, she owns and operates her own business, MellaART, where she teaches children in an extracurricular After School Art program as well as private lesson for children, adults and groups. She is involved in the community, where she teaches for the local colleges and often volunteers her time and skills in order to “give back”.

“All my life, even as a young child, I’ve been able to draw and paint. It was a source of self esteem and naturally evolved into a self-fulfilling prophesy. I consider it to be a gift and like all gifts, should be shared freely. Enjoy.”

 

 

We will also be sampling this months featured wines from Bogle

Join us for our June Featured Artist , Tobbe Byrd

Wednesday, June 3rd from 5-8pm, we welcome,

Tobbe Byrd

Being a Pensacola, Florida native I have access to all the treasures of the Gulf of Mexico. It has given me many subjects to transform into metal works of art. Each piece of art is created by hand; therefore no one piece is identical.

I have been diving and fishing for over 20 years and have seen my subjects in their natural environment. I use this to my advantage in trying to make each piece of aquatic art as realistic as possible.

All of the pieces are hand drawn and then cut with a manually operated plasma cutter.  Once the pieces have been cut out I de-burr and polish them.

This gives you the final product that you see… Enjoy!

Join us Wednesday, February 4th, from 5-8PM

For the second year, Jaco’s will host the Pensacola State College Advanced Photography Program “Jaco’s Sunset Contest” as part of their Art à la carte monthly featured artist series. This is the final semester for students in the program whose curriculum includes obtaining experience in exhibiting their work. Jaco’s is excited to partner with PSC again this year to give these students not only the opportunity to exhibit their work, but also to support them in their artistic aspirations. Each student is allowed one submission; their classmates vet those submissions; and on February 4th they will display them at Jaco’s. That evening from 5-8PM there will be a special reception where the public is invited to meet the students, discuss their submissions, begin casting their votes, and even enjoy a sample of some featured wines.

 

For the month of February, the public is encouraged to visit Jaco’s and vote for their favorite photo. At the end of the voting, we will tally all the votes and a winner and runner-up will be selected. Both will receive an award and a prize. The winner also will receive the opportunity to be one of Jaco’s Art à la carte featured artists for a future month, giving them the opportunity to have an independent exhibit of their work.

 

Come help support Pensacola State College and a future artist by casting your vote during their competition!

He traveled throughout Europe buying art and antiques. During this time, he continued to paint with passion and studied under Belgium artists.

Patrice became a full time artist in 2006, painting and selling his original art. In 2007, Patrice became a listed artist.
