Artist Ashley Jude Jonas- Moments of Wonder & Creating Artist-Run Spaces

In this episode, I talk to Ashley Jude Jonas, an artist, writer, curator, and educator originally from Key West, Florida about her work and also creating the artist-run space, The Blue House. She holds a BFA in ceramics from the University of Florida and an MFA in ceramics from the University of Colorado Boulder. Her work reframes potential and wonder in the context of the every day through sculptural, photographic and two-dimensional works. Utilizing found objects and site-specificity, she asks us to pay attention to the often unnoticed and peculiar relationships between form, function and place.

Ashley exhibits her work at regionally and nationally recognized institutions and artist-run spaces including The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, the Neon Heater in Findley OH, University of Minnesota, The Carbondale Clay Center, Undercurrent in Brooklyn NY and has been an artist in residence at Kansas State University and Project 1612 in Peoria, IL. She co-directs and curates for the Blue House Arts in Dayton, OH, which she founded with her partner in 2014. Ashley holds a lecturer position of Fine Arts Foundations at the University of Dayton, while she maintains her studio and writing practices.

It’s great that Ashley Jude Jonas noticed an unfilled niche in Dayton and built an arts space. I love the name. My question is, Ms Jonas mean when she says all the artwork in Dayton was boring. I wonder is there a medium she thinks is boring? A subject? I’d like to hear more details.
