BLOOMSBURG — An exhibit of photography by Tomiko Jones will be featured in Bloomsburg University’s Haas Gallery of Art from Jan. 18 to Feb. 11. The exhibit is open to the public free of charge Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 2 p.m., with a reception scheduled for Monday, Feb. 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the gallery.

Jones’ work consists of sculptural video installations and “questionably fictional photographs.” Displayed in any of her exhibits will be landscapes, portraits, abstract angles or seasonal-themed photographs. Jones’ unique touch to her exhibits is her video installations. These videos are essentially moving photographs, showing an authentic scene with innovative angles and perpetual movement.

Jones received a Master of Fine Arts in photography with a certificate in museum studies from the University of Arizona in Tucson in 2008. She has received various awards, including the national Society for Photographic Education Freestyle Crystal Apple Award for Outstanding Achievement. She teaches 3D Concepts at Drury University in Springfield, Mo., as part of a summer intensive Master of Arts Program
