Madelon Jones graduated from UCLA with a BFA in painting and a minor in printmaking. While there, she studied painting with Nathan Oliviera and Irving Petlin. Upon graduation she returned to New York City for advanced studies at NYU and The School of Visual Arts (SVA). After many years as a painter she returned to SVA to work with the well known printmaker Robert Blackburn, who subsequently invited her to become a member of the Printmaking Workshop, a world renowned atelier for printmaking. There she was one of ten artists asked to participate in the creation of a special portfolio that received funding from the National Endowment of the Arts.
Throughout the years Madelon has participated in numerous exhibitions in New York City and around the country. When the National Archives in Washington D.C. purchased the Printmaking Workshop’s permanent collection, her work was well represented. Recent New York City showings include the George Billis and Pleiades Gallery in Chelsea (1999), and one woman shows at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance in Narrowsburg, NY (2002), the Amos Eno Gallery in New York City (2003), The Sullivan County Museum (CSA) (June 2004), and again at Amos Eno (October 2005). Her work can be seen in private collections as: The Norton Simon Collection, AT&T, Republic Bank, Banker’s Trust, and Trump America. Madelon teaches master printmaking classes at her studio in Youngsville, NY.
