The exhibit, sponsored by the Newport Beach CIty Arts Commission, shows a series of photographs that focus “on forms and designs found in nature, often revealed in close-up,” according to the city’s website.
Jones had a 22-year career as a writer and journalist in Hollywood and was married to Chuck Jones, the animation director of Looney Tunes fame, when they moved to Corona del Mar in 1981. Chuck Jones died in 2002.
In recent years, Marian Jones pursued her love of photography, working in color and black and white. “Shoreline Vision” focuses on the seashore, which she says is her “greatest fascination.”
“It changes with every tide,” she said in a statement, “and yet is the most ancient and abiding source of life.”
The exhibit will be on display through October at the Central Library at 1000 Avocado Ave. For more information, call (949) 717-3870.
