The Legacy of Mary Sherwood Wright Jones. Creativity shapes our lives, empowering us to discover new directions. Explore an exhibition tracing the impact of nationally known, Licking County artist Mary Sherwood Wright Jones (1892-1985.) Widely recognized for her children’s illustrations, her fine artworks are featured here for the first time. Her legacy spans generations. By following her early passion for drawing, Jones set an example for her children, grandchildren, and her greatgrandchildren.

View a short video (1:44) of artist Michael Kennedy, who discusses the fascinating roots of this exhibit and the potential to inspire others.

The exhibition traces that gift through the paintings and photographs of two of her grandchildren, Michael Kennedy and Anne Sherwood Pundyk and one of her great-children, Phoebe Pundyk. The artwork, videos and books on display share her life lessons with viewers, perhaps inspiring ideas about ways to embrace creativity in their own lives.
