The Art Gallery at Rivier University will present “Every Color Has a Different Song,” photographs by Lou Jones, through March 7.

The eclectic career of Lou Jones has spanned multiple photographic formats, film types, artistic movements, and technological developments. Maintaining a studio in Boston, he has produced work for Fortune 500 Corporations, National Geographic, and the Olympics, among many other clients. He has been the winner of prestigious accolades, including recognition from the International Photographic Council of the United Nations and The Griffin Museum of Photography’s Focus Award. His fine art photography has been exhibited at Harvard University’s Fogg Museum, the African American Museum in Philadelphia, Wellesley College, and other museums and universities throughout the world. Having served on the boards of directors of photographic organizations, societies, and museums, Jones has also contributed to the founding of the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University.

The exhibition at Rivier University features “photographs of people who are fugitives in their worlds, who have little or no voice or are unaware of their contributions,” says Jones. Included are images from the Olympic games and street photos from various other world settings. “For over twenty years I've been shooting the Olympics. It's the biggest cross-cultural, international event in the world. Every four years a host country builds a whole new city. . . another city within a city. Whereas some people specialize in landscapes, architecture, animals, flowers or still life, mostly I photograph people,” added Jones. “And the best place to find large concentrations is cities—big cities—metropolis.”

“As photographer Lou Jones might be identified as a proud citizen of the world, one who with great affection and visual acuity detects the deeper relationships between environments and their impact on the human experience,” said Sr. Theresa Couture, Director of the Art Gallery at Rivier University.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a Gallery Talk by the artist on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 4 p.m., with an inclement weather date of Feb. 20.

The gallery is located on the second floor of Memorial Hall and is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., and on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Admission is free. Access is available by elevator and six low steps.
